"Just a thought"-Spreading inspirational thoughts

Just a thought is an inspirational and motivational blog, where you can learn a lot. As it is David Woon, the blogger's reflection about life in general.

The blog was created to share our thoughts,learn and grow together to make this world a better place.

I am quoting here 2 blog posts, which inspired me. One of the post is "Thank your way to Good Health!" and it says:

"Psychologists have discovered that thankfulness has positive effects on our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Whenever I count my blessings and thank God for all of them, my day would somehow be a better one! So remember to be thankful for what you have - it's an easy and FREE way to obtain good health in mind, body and soul!"

Anlother post is: "The Character Gauge" and it is about "how do we know if we are growing in character?"

David suggested this answer to this question:

I propose two measures to gauge one's character:

1. Nobody-Centric
Don't be overly impressed by spectacular displays of courage, charity or love - it is difficult to determine the underlying motives of such actions.

One accurate external measure would be to observe how one treats the toilet-cleaner, waiter, sweeper, taxi driver or anyone who obviously isn't an asset in any imaginable way - in short, the nobodies. One can be nice to the handicapped to show off his compassion but it takes one with true character to pardon the clumsy waiter who spills soup on him.

“You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them.” - Malcolm S. Forbes (1919-1990) Publisher

"A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person." - Dave Barry, humor columnist

2. Self-Centric
Believe it or not, most of the time, we act in a certain way to impress people or simply to look "good" in front of people. It is only when we are alone that we exhibit our true character, eg. you wouldn't download illegal materials from the internet in front of your children.

So simply observe what you do when you're alone and you'll get a good idea of the kind of person you really are.

"Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking." - H. Jackson Browne, Writer
"Reputation is what you are in the light; character is what you are in the dark." - American Proverb
