shutterstock_94177198Have You heard this Italian Proverb?

“One Should Learn to Sail in All Winds.”

What does that mean to You??

1 quality that can help us all sail well in any given situation or circumstance (or with any given person in any circumstance) is Respect.

How do You describe/define Respect? How do You demonstrate Respect? What do You Respect? Whom or What deserves Respect in Your life? How do You choose to display Respect? Would You agree, we all could experience more wellness in life IF we cultivated more of this positive trait: R.E.S.P.E.C.T. ?!

Here’s some on-line definitions of Respect to consider:

A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
Admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
noun. regard – esteem – reverence – deference – consideration
verb. honour – honor – esteem – regard – venerate – revere

I believe: We should show impartial concern for All-Breathing-Fragile-Life. One way we can do this is by cultivating MORE Respect.  As Partners or Caregivers to those suffering any kind of pain, for example mental illness…can’t we be more respectful?! Can all of us respect others’ dignity?

REPSECT–A crucial component/quality to cultivate/grow/learn/practice for Partners in Wellness and Caregivers, Family and Friends…Global-Brotherhood-of-Breathing-Fragile-Lifeall of us would benefit. :)

Don’t dis anyone! ALL LIFE IS PRECIOUS!:) All Life is Worth Respecting. How can we respect ANY ONE or ANY THING/ANY LIFE, etc….IF we don’t learn to appreciate?! Value?! A lack of respect is a lack of appreciation, a lack of gratitude, a lack of understanding! Life is not lacking when we truly learn to appreciate/respect it!:)

We All Have Something Valuable to Give and it’s:shutterstock_37772725

1 way to show RESPECT (which i’m always working on):


 “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and he that is loving it will eat its fruitage.” (Proverbs 18:21)

LIFE is so much Sweeter with R.E.S.P.E.C.T.…Please…gimme some Baby!:) 

P.S..actually, as i compose this: i’m wearing a *Pink hoodie = Respect for all…fragile life….Life is SWEET…when You appreciate it, eh. Too much AC/aka manipulated climate/conditioning gets cold…stay warm/alive in all climates i say…by showing/wearingRESPECT!

(*for clarity: in case You need some:) pink hoodie–concretely for warmth/abstractly for warmth. (i.e also applicably here: Zimmerman/Martin or Martin/Zimmerman)
