Discrete and Anonymous

Boasting.

Happy are the people who do good deeds for the sake of being discrete and anonymous. There is a big difference between carrying out good deeds while remaining anonymous and carrying out good deeds with the intent of drawing attention.

I have always felt good deeds and hard work are noticed, appreciated, and rewarded without tooting our horn. The rewards derived from being humble may not be realized right away, but they will be bestowed upon us in due time. I’ve found if a person chooses to draw attention for their good deeds, their rewards are usually materialistic and not everlasting. Tooting our own horn with the intent of getting attention eventually results in others becoming resentful of the way we advanced our personal agenda. Always try hard to do things the right way with little fanfare. Yes its true, people do get attention and promoted based on how outrageously they sell their agenda and toot their boastful horn to others. However, let me say with great certainty those people are usually the ones who present themselves to be someone they are not. Their rewards are likely to have strings attached which results in more attention to fuel their ego.

The ego on the outside cannot be allowed to over rule the sanctity of the inside. If we go about our business in a way that honors who we are, there is no need to draw attention to one’s self because the happiness gained from any good deed is always recognized in unspoken and unseen ways. The unspoken and unseen affirmations of our good deeds will be rewarded in ways we physically cannot understand. If we are honest with ourself and present ourself as we are, we are not tooting our horn, rather we are presenting the truth.  Let us be humble, full of joy, and glad for great rewards which await us.

I believe what is spoken from the heart and soul speaks volumes about who we really are. When our heart and soul becomes overpowered by ego, anger, deception and insincerity, we often speak foolishly. If actions and words are not from our innermost being we are not who we want to be. I believe in speaking from the heart and soul, I've found most folks prefer genuine people. I encourage you to listen to your heart and soul, to speak of the things that have brought light and wisdom into your life. The topics I present are heartfelt and come from years of experience with life, research and common sense. I extend my sincere wishes for the best to come your way. Thank you God for uplifting traits within us all that brings out the best of who we are. I look forward to your comments.
