This is a gift we received at our last Toastmasters meeting, where the Toastmaster shared her New Year's resolution: She's going to pay it forward, and share any inspiration she receives with others.
The bag probably looks a little strange just from the photo, but here's what the card says:
Daily Survival Kit
TOOTHPICK to remind you to pick out the good qualities in others.
RUBBER BAND to remind you to be flexible, things might not always go the way you want, but it will work out.
BAND AID to remind you to heal hurt feelings - yours or someone else's.
PEN to remind you to make a list of your blessings every day.
ERASER to remind you that everyone makes mistakes, and it's ok.
CHEWING GUM to remind you to stick with it and you can accomplish anything.
MINT to remind you that you are worth a mint!
CANDY KISS to remind you that everyone needs a kiss or a hug every day.
TEA BAG to remind you to relax daily and go over that list of blessings.
As you can see, I've taken her resolution on as my own - passing this on. Feel free to do the same! :-)
