      “Kindness. That’s all I’ve ever known.”

      A Better Day: Slice of Life

      “Kindness. That’s all I’ve ever known.”- Grandma

      From what I’ve seen in movies, employees are usually not  too excited when their boss asks to speak. But things at The Better House are different. My favorite part of work is when Grandma taps me on my shoulder and asks if we can speak! Weather we’re spending 4 hours attempting to sort our trademarks and logistics 😩 or shmoozing- I love it all.  

      Today, I felt Blessed as I listened to Grandma share her life-lesson-of-the-day with me. 

      “From the time I was little, I have always been surrounded by kind people. People who were always willing to help the person next to them (no matter who needed help), without thinking twice about it. Back in Italy (when my family needed help), guess who helped us? The poor!!! They gave us everything they had!! I pray that when someone goes out of their way to do kindness- that kindness flows back onto them and their family!”

      Although this world may seem crazy at times, it’s truly filled with so much goodness! We are getting closer and closer. Just keep your eyes open. Be kind. And always love. 🥰

      Things don’t always go as planned

      A Better Day: Slice of Life

      Things don’t always go as planned, especially when using a 81 year old elevator 🚸 

      Recently we were in a way-too-long debate... whether or not we should upgrade some office equipment (don’t worry we aren't touching the elevator). Unsure of what to do, the decision was finally made when Ilana said “It’s silly to push off things that you need!”

      Later I’ll do this, later I’ll do that. Too often I find myself avoiding what has to be done, wishing that the task will take care of itself. 

      But the truth, you, and only you, were created to complete your task- right here, right now!

      By changing our perspective from “have to” ➡️ “get to” - we unlock: freedom. The ability to recognize the privilege we are given to complete our mission and tasks. #JustDoIt. 

       **Disclaimer: we know you’re wondering ‘why did you post a “Slice of Life” on Monday?’ Our answer is simple, just because... 🙃 Happy Monday!  #WeAreBlessed

      The opportunity to create a positive change

      A Better Day: Slice of Life

      Each and every one of us has the opportunity to create a positive change. Although I may not be able to help heal the entire world, I know I have the power to change a small part, for someone…

      My favorite ((Starfish)) Story: A boy was walking along the beach and noticed an old man who was picking up starfish along the shore sand and gently throwing them back into the ocean. The boy approached the man and asked him “why are you doing this?” The man replied “If I don’t throw them back into the water they’ll die...” The boy said to the man “But there are hundreds of starfish along the shore, you won’t be able to save them all! So, why do it at all?” Suddenly, the man bent down, picked up a starfish and threw it back into the water. Then, he smiled at the boy and said “BUT TO THIS ONE, I MADE A DIFFERENCE.”

      Be brave my friend! Have the courage to connect with yourself, your family, your friends, and our world!

      All it takes is one kind word, one thoughtful action, and one smile to change a world. As our Great Sages taught: One life is a whole world… change one life and YOU CHANGE THE WORLD!
