21 Reasons . . . for Anything

You’ve got JJ today.  The theme continues with 21 reasons . . . but, given I don’t mind posting (long as I have some sort of idea what to write about) . . . I opted for 21 reasons for doing anything someone might request of us—long as it’s decent, legal, and something within our capacity/capability of doing (and, if it’s not, we find or suggest an option).

It’s something that:

    1. is kind to do
    2. we do from the heart
    3. makes us happy
    4. makes us a better person
    5. we don’t intentionally seek gratitude for
    6. results in the requesting person smile
    7. lessens the requesting person’s load (and that’s a great thing)
    8. is supportive / helpful / enlightening
    9. provides purpose
    10. offers a sense of satisfaction
    11. isn’t a big deal, so we do it with a smile
    12. makes us feel good / accomplished
    13. we learn from
    14. could inspire others
    15. enhances our self-confidence or self-respect
    16. may help us meet new people / make new friends
    17. prompts us to do/give your best
    18. may alleviate our own sense of apprehension / stress / sadness by focusing on the task (in other words, it distracts)
    19. sets a good example / inspires others (to be equally giving)
    20. may result in us getting assistance when we require it
    21. good = good (there’s that cosmos / kismet belief that if you do good, you receive good).

So, there you have it—my contribution to 21 reasons.  Nothing mind-blowing or earth-shattering.  Just some food for thought.

I’m curious as to what Cousin Reynalda will come up with for Saturday’s post.  Linda and I saw her frantically jotting notes this morning as she gulped back a mega-sized mug of coffee (her fourth).  Linda’s thinking “scary”, I’m thinking “melodramatic” (he-he).

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
