L is for Life Measurement…

Welcome to your daily dose of inspiration:
In Darkness Be Light.

Since social media and news in recent times has been filled with so much hate and negativity, these simple reminders aim at promoting positivity and lightening up your day.

Life isn’t measured by the years/days/hours/minutes/seconds you live. Nor is it gauged neither by your accomplishments or wealth nor even by how many friends or good deeds. Life is solely valued by the people you have made feel good about themselves… for those are the ones that pass it on!   Wes Adamson


Would you like to be a part of spreading positivity? Check out the We Are The World Blogfest, which aims at promoting positive news. Here’s the shortened version:


  • Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
  • All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
  • Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news.

    Hi Michelle – yes … if we make everyone feel at ease and comfortable we definitely enhance our lives and all those we ‘touch’ with our daily contact in life … smile and encourage all around us … cheers Hilary

    Very inspiring, Michelle! Making other people feel better is a priceless contribution to the world indeed.

    That’s exactly it! How many people were affected by you in a positive way.

    Good way to measure life. There’s a lot of truth to that.

    This is so true. Feeling valued by others can bring on the desire to make another person feel the same way. ~ fellow #WATWB member

    Showing a genuine interest in people’s lives is more beneficial than getting them to “like” you. It isn’t something that always comes naturally because as humans we have a desire to shine. With that in mind, making someone else shine reflects on me and then we both shine.

    I hadn’t considered that perspective on life, but it’s a good perspective. I imagine even just kind words might help someone when they need it.

    I was at church this Sunday morning – it was wonderful to be with people I’d never met and wish them ‘peace’ – those lovely warm smiles will stay with me a long time. So, I was on the receiving end and I know how meaningful it is. May we all smile and be kind.
