"When You Know Better, You Do Better!"

"When You Know Better, You Do Better!"

.

"When You Know Better, You Do Better!" 😊

.

Maya Angelou's quote is: "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.": emilysquotes.com/wp-content...

.

_______

If you know of audio/ video of Maya Angelou speaking these words, would you mind taking time to kindly link to it here? (Much appreciated! 🙏)

Would love to hear her speaking 🗣💬 them again. (Miss her dearly 😥.)

_______

.

In meantime, if you derive comfort hearing her voice, be momentarily soothed ☺️ :

.

"Just do right":

.

.

"Power of words":

.

.

❤️ 😭 Heart (simultaneously) weeps & leaps with joy. 😂

Hope it inspires. 🌅 🙏

Kind regards,

Kai

    [The 'poem' content of this previous post (since inadvertently deleted by HU's 'over-sensitive spam filter' 😳) is now restored here should you ever wish to re-hear Maya Angelou's soothing words. 👍 🙏 ]

    Maya Angelou's loving soul comes through the richness in her voice.

    (We were fortunate to see/ hear her -- have her in our midst -- in our lifetime. 🤗 )

    Thank gawd for the internet (videos/ audios), so future generations can imbibe her spirit! 👻 We can look back & be re-inspired by her 'being'. ☺️

  • Kai-- , I wasn't sure how you wanted the replies. ...I'm not real techy?? Lol I will say I do love all your post and ending with "It's a Wonderful Life", it doesn't get any better!! Thank you, Peck.🐤

  • Hello, dear Peck 🐤 !

    I hope you're doing well, kind lady. 🙏

    Wishing you the very best this new year. 🎉 🎈

    Please keep taking good, kind, loving care of yourself. 🍀 🌺 🤗

  • Kai-- , Thank you for such kind words!! Be blessed. Peck.🐤

  • Hi Kai.....Thank you for sending such an Inspirational Post on a wonderful lady....My best wishes to you.....xx

  • Very welcome, Trikki. 🙏

    Right back at you! 👍

    May 2017 be a wonderful year! 😃

    (Otherwise we'll have to swap it out for another. 🙃 😉 )

  • Thanks my friend :)

    Please keep taking good care. 🙏 🍀 🌺 🤗

  • Thank you, and I sincerely hope that 2017 is an amazing and fantastic year for you :)

  • Love love loveeee thank you Kai, my favourite quote on my walls is "be the best that you can be" some think kindness is my weakness, granted I've been mistreated and abused because I'm "too kind" but I'd still rather take those experiences and still be me and still be kind and helpful to those who need it. Maya is a great example of how bad experience does not have to change a person negatively. Pain has changed me without a doubt but my inner core is still the same. I may not be as able bodied as I once was, when my hundreds of friends found me to be so helpful always willing to pitch in and help out, so certainly I cannot give of myself as freely as I once did. Now my spoons are precious but if someone comes to me needing support I always give it in any way I can, I'm just more limited in what I can do. But so long as the heart and soul are good, so long as we "just do right" we should be ok. We don't know what awaits us, but I'm sure we will all be ok x

  • Beautifully, b e a u t i f u l l y said, orchidcass! 🌺

    So true, so true on each & every point. 👍

    You strike a deep, profound chord -- just as Maya Angelou herself. 😌

    _______

    We see it in the kindness of your courageously sharing your own personal journey with illness. 🙏

    Hope autoimmuners have a moment to view your remarkable autoimmune story -- Parts 1 & 2: healthunlocked.com/nras/pos...

    We witness your loving kindness & inner strength shine through. 🌞

    Think an awful lot of Fibromyalgia sufferers, multi-autoimmuners, as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) sufferers (with or without co-morbidities) will appreciate your story. 🙏

    You are a wonderful inspiration to us all, dear lady. 🤗

    Wishing you the very best. 🙏 🌺 🍀 🌞

  • Thank you kai you organise all I've mentioned much better than I seem able lol. I found a picture today I will share it to my profile if I can work out how it fits here perfectly sorry I couldn't work out how to post it as a reply. Thanks for the support :) unfortunately the fibro board had to delete my post sharing my video they felt it contravened their rules which I probably should have read through first :/ but never mind, I honestly just hope my story helps anyone it can reach x

  • Think pictures/ photos can only be added when we initiate a Post? 🤔 ('Replies' lack the 'Add Photo' option; maybe 1 day that'll become an option? 👍 )

    _____

    Disappointed to hear the videos contravened forum's rules. 😳 🙃 Think videos would've been of great interest & helped many, many multi-autoimmuners -- especially Fibromyalgia folks.

    Oh well . . . ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    _____

    Thankfully, interested folks will be able to view it elsewhere. 🙏 By clicking on your moniker, 'orchidcass77' in blue, they'll be able to find videos under your 'Post' ( healthunlocked.com/user/orc... ): "My autoimmune me story": healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... 👍

    _____

    Hmm . . . Maybe trying to initiate a new post on the Fibro. forum with a link to a post on another forum (which contains the videos) would be acceptable alternative? 🤔 💡

    That way, interested folks could access your videos -- without breaking any forum rules? 👍 (Maybe that's a reasonable solution that stays within forum's guidelines while allowing folks access to good info? 🤔 🙏 ) Merely thinking aloud.

    .

    🌺 🍀 🌞

  • Interesting thinking Kai. I would like to reach out to fibro folk too. Fibro is such a complex condition and regularly joins our multi immune mess. It's definitely all connected. I really should be posting all over here more often but as you've seen I get confused and off topic easily haha. I guess the videos feels a more real way to put myself across x

  • I know what you mean, orchidcass77. That's why I like the videos too. 🤗 And, I think they convey so much more than mere written words are capable of conveying. Video truly shows who a person is; that truth touches our very soul. 🙏 ☺️
