Reach Out


Stretch yourself to the limit.

Reach out every chance you have.

Take that moment to make eye contact and reach out.

Make the connection.

Give of yourself unselfishly.

Think of others.

The minuscule seed will grow if you nurture it.

Let go of petty differences.

They don't matter.

They don't shake the earth.

They put up barriers instead of open doors and open hearts.

We all hurt sometimes.

We all bleed sometimes.

We all have needs.

We all matter.

So reach out.

And mean it.

blueviolet said...

Unselfishness...yes!

Rock Chef said...

Doing this today, as it happens!

Brian Miller said...

a wonderful reminder...putting others first does not mean we dont care for ourselves...because most times i reach out i find i get so much more back...

TechnoBabe said...

Bernie, most of your posts touch my heart too.

blueviolet, I think of you like that, you are an unselfish person.

Rock Chef, glad you are like this.

Brian, Exactly! Reaching out with no thought of anything in return yields so much more in the long run.

Gail said...

Wise words worth remembering!

Betty said...

Mean it. That is so important when reaching out.

Syd said...

Yes, such good words filled with positive action.

Suldog said...

Did you write that? I have no reason to assume you didn't, of course, but just checking. In any case, it's wonderful.

LL Cool Joe said...

I need to do this more often, I'm not always good at reaching out.

Jeanie said...

Such good thoughts to start this day (or any day) with. I hope I can keep this in my mind as this day goes forward.

TechnoBabe said...

Gail, Some words are more than just words. I know you know that.

Betty, yes, mean it. Like we mean it when we reach out to each other online.

Syd, positive actions get positive results.

Suldog, yes I wrote this. Just jotting down some feelings.

LL Cool Joe, For me, being aware of reaching out and meaning it from my heart is bringing about unity one person at a time.

Jeanie, so glad you like to start your day thinking and acting like this. Hugs.

DJan said...

Starting my day with these thoughts uppermost in my mind and heart. I'll think "reach out" at each person I meet today. Thank you, Techno!

TALON said...

This was lovely, TechnoBabe. It's amazing how even the simplest acts - smiling, holding open a door, etc - have a beautiful impact.

Opaque said...

True! Reach out to the possibilities...

Lori said...

I love this! Reaching out seems to be a lost art in our busy world...when we allow ourselves to just stop, there are so many we can reach out to...even if it's for a moment or two...we all have something to give, even though many of us don't know that...a smile, holding a door open, a phone call or a hand written card to say hello and I'm thinking of you. Reaching out can be so simple and yet we get so much back in return.

Thank you for reminding me of this at the start of my day. XX

JStar said...

This is nice an uplifting

Kulio said...

Yes! It's so easy to get caught up in ourselves and stop thinking about the people we come in contact with everyday. Looking out instead of looking in helps us as well as others!

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Need.... I want an IPhone!!!

Cricket said...

Very nice. It's what it's all about, no?

p.s. - Where did James's blog go? Give him my regards. Tell him I hope he comes back. :-)

Silver Strands said...

Wow. Very, very nice.

Kristina P. said...

I love this. I've been thinking about how I need to reach out more. Maybe start volunteering again.

Sassy Pants Freckle Face said...

Wow,.. and that pic, <3 it!

TechnoBabe said...

DJan, glad you read this at the start of your day.

Talon, yes, it is relatively simple to show kindness isn't it?

Opaque, reaching and stretching can mean achieving so much.

Lori, you are correct, there are so many ways to reach out.

JStar, glad you feel like that.

Kulio, I like your thought of looking out instead of in.

Shadowthorne, You crack me up.

Cricket, James shut his blog down, he is doing fine and writing and making music. I gave him your message. He says thank you. He undeleted the blog but he isn't blogging there or reading comments.

Silver Strands, Thank you.

Kristina P, I appreciate your input.

Hi Gary, ditto.

Nezzy said...

Think of what a world it would be if we were all reachin' out to others instead of grabbin' what we can get from others. When we give we are always blessed in return. Hands out sisters!

God bless ya and have an extraordinary day!!!

Big Dave T said...

Sounds like my uncle read this. He reached out to his sister, my aunt, recently. They put aside longstanding differences too, going back about a dozen years. It is always nice to see folks make up like this.

Jeni said...

As usual, when you are left to your own devices, you produce some awesome stuff!

Ed Pilolla said...

great piece and art. i really like the pace you set and how you bring it home with acceleration.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hey Techno, I'm back from vacation and wanted to say, I missed you!

I just caught up on your prior posts-- You're such a gifted writer. It's good catching up with you.

Happy September (already!) to you and James.
