The Imprint You Make

Deeper LoveBy Amanda J. Seymour, Th.M.

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it within us or we find it not.”  — Ralph Waldo Emerson

We all make an impact, both in our daily lives and when traveling.  I am not talking about a carbon footprint impact or some other environmental impact here.  I am talking about the impact you make by being you.

Just by being ourselves, we affect the  world around us.  And we do something more than have an impact.  We leave an imprint.

The kind of imprint we leave on the lives of others will be determined by what we carry in the treasure of our hearts.  How do you know what you are carrying?  Look at what you think about and seek out the most…Those you love?  That which is beautiful?  Uplifting?  Joy-giving?  Or do you find you are constantly preoccupied with concerns, restlessness, and strife?  Or somewhere in between?

We must strive to find the beautiful and let it live within us. In doing so, we will carry it within us and it will become like an abundant treasure which will enrich our lives and the lives of others.  And as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Though we travel the world over to to find the beautiful, we must carry it within us or we find it not.”

In our lives and in our travels, we can make a beautiful impact.  Even small ways make a big difference, such as giving someone a smile, a warm embrace, an encouraging word or an act of kindness.  In doing so especially when we travel, we can defy the “ugly American” stereotype and leave a beautiful imprint on those whose lives and hearts we touch.  Because whether we realize it or not, we do touch hearts and lives every day – just by being ourselves.

What kind of imprint do you want to make?

  2. First!just finished watching the episode and i couldn't agree more about the whole idea of needless voting on the biggest looser. many of these shows really do not require this extra element, and in my opinion suffer for it. I used to watch the British season of master chef when it was on daytime tv and thus was a little dismayed to discover the whole needless voting element being added to the australian version. now the show is less about the cooking and more about the scheming and peoples feelings about this shit rather then a quality show where the contestants battle using their cooking skills.

  3. I love this movie! The scene, where baby Imogene’s mother tells Will he is going to be a lonely old man and his reply “Fingers crossed” always cracks me up.The Christmas scene, when Marcus is so appreciative of a pair of socks makes me want to throttle his father. Socks, as Christmas gift?!When he buys the car seat for Ned and is dirtying it up – he can’t be completely self-contained if he knows just how icky a car seat can be……

  4. Also getting this on PC. As for the head to head, the 360 looks a little blurry in some shots, and also a tad too dark. But the PS3 seems a little too bright, and the colors seem a little less vibrant. Pick your poison, I guess…VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

  5. Being a second language teacher I can’t help wondering if there could also be a connection between learning sign and learning a 2nd language. I know that your 2nd language does not use the same part of the brain as your first does. (Studies even show that bilingual people are less susceptible to senility because we use more of our brain ;o) I guess I’ll have to look it up.

  6. People like me and you can review items on Cnet. Spybot is recommended for spyware, yet you need at least two spyware scanners. Virus scanners are only for viruses. Trojans are another story. You need a trojan scanner. As well as an adware scanner, and firewall. Some virus scanners scan for spyware too, yet you should also have a spyware scanner for they aren’t perfect. Please review Cnet. Good luck and Happy HolidaysReferences : Cnet.com

  7. Menee nyt vähän ohi aiheen…Onko kasvovesi mielestänne tarpeellinen? Vai onko se vain turhaa rahastusta? Olen miettinyt tätä monta kertaa ja onhan se ihana semmoisella lotrailla, mutta onko siitä todellista hyötyä?Mistä saa mahdollisimman ekoja ja myrkyttömiä hiusvärejä? Olen nyt käyttänyt Ruohonjuuresta ostamiani Herbatint-hiusvärejä, mutta olisiko jossain jotain muita vaihtoehtoja? Vielä en ole suostunut luopumaan hiusväristä.

  8. How do i get rid of acid reflux?I been having acid reflux for a couple years and had been taking nexuim to stop it but now it seems the nexuim stopped working and now I’m getting acid reflux more constantly. So I would like to know a sure way to get rid of it cause it’s got to the point that it’s unbearable. So can someone please help me and tell me if there’s any other way to get rid of it?

  9. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  11. We use American Waste now by the bag, since we aren’t always here and don’t usually have a lot of trash.Although by doing that, we don’t have recycle. We have been hauling in to recycling centers.As long as they keep the recycling centers open, its a great way to go.Mike

  12.   oyvindsoFin rapport igjen, Espen. Eg likte ogsÃ¥ løypa. Kilometertida gjekk frÃ¥ 4.14 til 3.52 pÃ¥ andre runde. Det fører definitivt til god løpsopplevelse! Ã… springa forbi halvparten av dei som var før meg etter første runde gav ei særs god kjensle.

  13. Szia! Én sem igazán értem a Koll3ction logikát, miért jó, hogy egy könyvet 2-3 helyre is becimkézek? Számomra az a lényeg, hogy egy könyvet minél hamarabb megtaláljak. Lehet, hogy én vagyok a buta, de ezt a mappaszerkezet kalakítást a program futtatása előtt hol kell megcsinálni, A PC-n vagy a Kindle-n? Mert ez a leírásból nem derült ki számomra!Köszi!

  14. Jaká je vaše úroveň Nejedlý, když vkládáte jiným do úst to co není pravdou ? Jaká je vaše úroveň Nejedlý, když neustále šíříte lži a ani to nejste schopen přiznat? Jaká je vaše úroveň Nejedlý, když nemáte ani charakter se držet jednoho podpisu a stále sem přicházíte jako naprosto nový moralizátor s naprosto stejným chováním, ufňukaností a slovníkem ?

  15. dit :Je sous estimais TiBiscuit pour le vélo, j’étais certaine qu’il lui faudrait des heures et des heures avant d’y arriver et il a suffi qu’il ait confiance en lui, sûr de réussir, que Mr Réglisse le lâche, pour qu’il parte sans tomber. Pourtant il n’en fait pas souvent du vélo.Chupa, la pauvrette, elle n’a même pas de vélo alors elle ne peut pas savoir en faire On verra ça quand on aura déménager. Vivement le printemps prochain, alors ! Elle va assurer ta Chupa, c’est une vraie battante !

  16. yea yea yea aku da bejaya menggilakan dri ngko kat blog ni kah3..hilang dah pahala ngko do mengadap blog ni..hati busuk ngko yg bru je disucikan dlm beberpa jam da busuk kembali ——> kau syaitan yg direjam rupanye, syaitan yg menjelma sbg manusia lalu menulis komen di blog??? astaghfirullah.. syaitan yg direjam syaitan yg direjam syaitan yang direjam!

  17. chyba raczej kiepskie. Na frazÄ™ z tytuÅ‚u „warsztat samochodowy gdaÅ„sk przymorze” sÄ… na 4 miejscu, a przecież to bardzo dÅ‚ugi ogon.Masz racjÄ™, że być może firma seo zna siÄ™ z wÅ‚aÅ›cicielem warsztatu, który zgodziÅ‚ na te cuda (napisaÅ‚em o tym we wprowadzeniu). Jednak nawet jeÅ›li tak jest, to takie postÄ™powanie jest nieetyczne, ponieważ szkodzi stronie. MówiÄ™ o szkodzie wizerunkowej i spadku konwersji, jeÅ›li tutaj w ogóle można o jakimkolwiek wizerunku i konwersji mówić…

  18. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Regards!

  19. / Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

  20. Your mention of the universe smacking you on the head reminds me of how the loss of my dad served to significantly lower my own toleration of bullshit, in particular the BS I was feeding myself about trying to do the right things but for the wrong reasons, and never ever being ‘good enough’. A lot of that fell away immediately, and I was able to be more present with remaining family. Thanks for the reminder!

  21. Call me old fashioned, but I really like it if the guy pays for the first date. It shows me that he’s interested, and if I’m interested in him then it’s a big turn-on. Singiness is a big turn-off. A guy who didn’t pay for the first date and asked me out again would have to perform better in another area to keep me interested. On the other hand, if I have zero interest in seeing him again, I would totally go Dutch. Also, once an exclusive relationship is established I can be a lot more generous.

  22. me gusta tu hoodie!!! its such a bright happy color. even though it may be too hot for summer its such a summery color :Dsunshine in clothing is the best.wow. im really cheerful today even though I just came back from a three hour final and have another one in 12 hours.

  23. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely return.

  24. Je trouve ça douteux (et démontre le côté subjectif de Martin) de placer le coca dans le rayon détergent. Au niveau de la consommatrice, les bouteilles ont la forme des bouteilles de javel, et au niveau du consommateur, les bouteilles ont la forme de produit comme le DDT.D’un autre côté, je trouve que le coca aussi à un gout douteux ^^.Kéké qui boit néanmoins du coca de manière occasionnelle et surtout quand le boulot le fatigue moralement…

  25. Estuve en Cabildo y Juramento a las 11.30 y puedo dar fé de que estuvo Julieta con el combo a regalar. Al final decidieron repartir el motin porque eramos muchos los que llegamos al lugar con fracciones de minuto por medio. se repartió todo entre 7 personas, obviamente el primero de todos los que saludaron a Cayetina fue el que se llevo el mejor premio.Yo ligué un gel corporal para masajes “HOT” jaja y una cajita de preservativos que voy a sortear en la oficina.Saludos Perros!!

  26. And I think, perhaps, that the idea’s that are floating in my head could be the seed pods for the nurse logs. They just haven’t landed and taken root yet.What an excellent way of phrasing. I’d like to use it in the future if I may?

  27. Good points, Jane and very timely in this time of economic challenges. You will find that many people see only the job, or only one possible career, and then when it disappears are in crisis mode. Staying on top of options makes you more marketable in the end. As someone who is right now basically reinventing me, it has been an adventure that I am still working my way through.

  28. I just saw the PS360Frame analysis on this game and the PS3 version maintains about 28fps with no screen tearing at all and the 360 version tears all over the place.LOT probably won’t be doing an analysis on this game because it’s a clear winner for PS3. DigitalFoundry might not even do an analysis on this game either.Oh well. I’m not going to play it because it looks like a boring generic shooter to me with no identity.I hope companies start releasing some original games soon.For what it’s worth, I’m having a blast with Assassin’s Creed 3. Masterpiece!VN:R_U [1.9.17_1161](from 1 vote)

  29. Seus bota-abaixistas maledicentes e pessimistas! Como podem duvidar destes resultados? Acaso insinuam que o "governo trabalha para os resultados"?!…É claro que estes resultados miraculosos são a consequência do Plano de Acção para a Matemática(!), de mais trabalho dos alunos e mais e melhor trabalho dos professores. Deveriamos estar patrioticamente orgulhosos.E, se os Portugueses quiserem, nos próximos quatro anos, os resultados podem melhorar ainda mais! Acaba-se de vez com o "insucesso"!

  30. Thanks for the tips! I’m always looking for ways to bring more traffic to my blog!Another good tip I’ve found is participating in blog hops and leaving real/meaningful comments on other people’s blogs. That’s brought me some decent traffic over the past year!LisaP.S. Thanks for linking up to the GTKY blog hop!

  32. ooohhh i love anything with chinese wine inside…i m salivating in front of comp now. you forgot mentioned also ladies with menses can take these sort of food so that our uterus can be more cleaned. esp teenagers with tummyache prob during the time. my mum used to do these sort of food for me when i was one. of course, this is a perfect excuse for non preggies to dig in heheehee..

  33. Mir gefällt das real-life-social reading besonders gut. Die Idee mit den Buchläden halte ich sogar so wie es jetzt dort aussieht, also mit Büchern für eine gute Idee. Wieso das ganze nicht verknüpfen? Wieso es im real-life nicht so machen, wie online? Ich denke wir werden noch so viele Neuerungen bekommen, dass wir irgendwann die Grenzen zwischen On und Offline welt verschwimmen sehen.

  34. 857674 939464Good read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was performing some research on that. And he truly bought me lunch as I located it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! 771397

  35. J'habite dans une fôret et nous avons récupérer en coupant du bois des tronçons d'arbre pour en faire des tables d'appoints toutes blanches.Mais quel boulot, entre les laisser sécher, les traiter contre les insectes qui se trouvaient dedans et la peinture arrf!!!:)

  36. Particularly useful article. Myself & my neighbor were preparing to do some research about that. We got a fantastic book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as descriptive as your information. I am fairly glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.

  37. Hi I found your article very interesting particularly because I’m just startin up a social enterprise business in Scotland to run Mindfulness courses for the Major life transitions one of the main ones being the rite of passage into Elderhood

  38. Chào em,Trường đào tạo 2 khối ngành : Công nghệ thông tin và kế toán doanh nghiệp. Thông tin chi tiết em có thể cập nhật thêm tại đây nhé.

  39. Yes, Ashley is a keeper- no doubt about that :-).Be sure to print out or save all those wonderful things you say about her on your blog- ’cause that sure will mean a lot to her later down the road (thinking about her wedding or other big occasion…).Love, Ve.
