I'm joining Leslie from Time Out for Mom for this week's Tuesday Coffee Chat. (I don't drink coffee, but...) Why not head over and read how others answer this week's prompt? or link up your own? (And if you want to get a jump start on next week's link up, the prompt is: Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?)
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Doing the right thing. If you do the right thing you'll be doing things right. See how that works? (At least in MY mind...) When all is said and done, doing the right thing leads to contentment and fulfillment of spirit.
Oh, I like things done right, completely, thoroughly. A half-swept floor, trash stowed or a grimy plate in the cupboard aren't pleasant reminders of something done wrong. Doing things right means getting the job done well! And a job well done gives a sense of personal accomplishment.These are THINGS though, and things aren't measurable compared to people, our family and friends, and even strangers and pets.
But doing the right thing? Well, it means caring for someone else more than yourself. It means doing what needs to be done because it is moral, valued, empathetic, helpful, insightful, life-enriching, Even if it's not for OURSELVES. It means love. Doing the right thing lightens the heart of burdens and fills it joy. Don't we all want joy?
