“I MAY NOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAID OR WHAT YOU DID, BUT I WILL REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE ME FEEL,” what a beautiful and powerful quote from Maya Angelou. The ability to move people’s SOULS is a very effective way of COMMUNICATING. As mentioned in previous posts MEMORY and EMOTIONS are in the same part of the brain, the limbic system. The rational part of the brain is the cortex.
One’s WARMTH and COMPASSION do not have to be learned or cultivated, it is within most people naturally. There are those that are afraid to demonstrate their natural COMPASSION for fear of appearing VULNERABLE. We all have to remember, to appear VULNERABLE is a definite sign of STRENGTH. MAKING SOMEONE FEEL NECESSARY, TO FEEL WANTED, TO FEEL LOVED demonstrates the power of your presence. As Maya said it is NOT WHAT YOU SAID OR DID, BUT IT IS HOW YOU MADE A PERSON FEEL.
THE JOURNEY OF FEELING is what the CIRCLE philosophy demonstrates; WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND STRONGER. The FEELING that one presents to another comes back with more fullness, more depth. The MEMORY is connected to the EMOTION. Hopefully we can ALL take advantage of this wonderful limbic system.
Thank you Maya Angelou, I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW I FELT AFTER READING YOUR QUOTE. SO UPLIFTING, SO ENLIGHTENING. THE JOURNEY OF FEELING HELPS TO BROADEN ONE’S KNOWLEDGE.
TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, STAY HEALTHY

Thank you for making me feel alive Dad ~ love you.
What a nice way to start the weekend with the words and guidance to make others feel good.
I have appreciated the impact that the culture of a company, or team, or family has on the performance, contribution, and happiness of an individual. We take ourselves with us always, and it is obvious that in cultures where we are aligned, we prosper and excel.
The ability to find the tools to make people welcome, happy, secure while being challenged and feel they have made a difference is a gift we must try to provide.
Happy holidays no matter what you may celebrate.
I’m lucky enough to know people that literally light up a room when they walk in. A gift they probably don’t know they have. They just make you feel good! You’re one of those and so you are a gift to me and all of us. 💜
