Feel Good Friday: The Man in the Queue

Happy “FEEL GOOD” Friday everyone!!! 

Have you ever tried to skip rocks on a pond or lake? I always envied people who could skip rocks along the surface, 4 or 5 times. I’ve never been very good at it, mine usually either skip once or just plop right into the water. But, when that one little rock breaks the surface of the water, you can see ripples fan out in all directions. And after the ripples touch something or someone, they return to the pebble.


That’s how life is right? We throw a pebble into the waters of life and life reacts, sending out ripples of positive (or negative) energy in all directions. That energy will affect, whomever it touches, then return to you.

So, I guess it’s okay that I can’t skip rocks, because we aren’t meant to skip along the surface of life’s water. We’re meant to dive right in and make ripples. We’re meant to shout out to life HEY…I’M HERE!


Today’s video, called “Ripple”, is 5:46, is a heart warming, inspirational tear-jerker of a video, illustrating how a random act of kindness can come back to you. ENJOY!

About Tamara Hoerner (1268 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
