What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage. Because we had many positive reactions to the vitamins we also want to present them on our webpage and hope that they will also bring many others a big pleasure.

Vitamins for the Heart

How Do You Leave People?

A compilation:

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou.

The greatest gift that we can give one another is rapt attention to one he another’s existence. – Sue Achley Ebaugh.

When we leave, people are left either …
- energized or depleted
– encouraged or discouraged
– inspired to tackle the next challenge or wanting to quit
How do you leave people?
Michael Hyatt 1.

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. – Henry James.

It is often the small kindnesses—the smiles, gestures, compliments, favors—that make our day and can even change our lives. – Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval 2.

Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. They make other people good-natured. They also produce their own image on men's souls, and a beautiful image it is. – Blaise Pascal.

Most of us don’t mean to be inconsiderate. We’re just so busy starring in our own movie that we forget that everyone else is starring in theirs. That’s why it’s extremely important to see yourself as others do—as the supporting actor in their movie. So do an inventory of all the people in your life, and ask yourself what kind of character you’d play in their movie. Are you the loving, doting grown daughter or the distracted, absentee one? The sweet, supportive boyfriend or the needy, selfish one? The office troubleshooter or the drama queen? For each relationship, write down five ways that you can make your “character” more sympathetic. – Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval 3.

The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you have done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought to other people’s lives than you will from the times that you outdid and defeated them. – Rabbi Harold Kushner.

 Sometimes the biggest obstacle to school attendance is the great poverty of the parents. They have so little money that they often cannot pay the school fees. Therefore, our school in Mushapo is for free.

Our objective – to provide education
