Living Life Today – The Care Principle

“Living Life Today provides a platform to think about your Life as it is Now, enjoy what you have, review and create an even better future for tomorrow”….. Short, sharp & easily digestible.

From my observation, there is insufficient “care” in this world. If there is one thing that I do well, it’s caring….. about others and about what I do. I’ve recently introduced my own “Care Principle” to all my business & personal dealings/interactions. I’d like to see a “Principle of Care” adopted everywhere. Mine is below. Play around a bit and see if you can come up with a “principle” of your own?





Imagine if people in general “cared” more. Now I know that all my readers do, so I’m talking about ‘others’. If they cared about what they said, what they did, about other’s feelings, wellbeing, successes, failures. Just imagine the difference this would make.

Caring what you do, think & say adds impact & substance to the recipient and yourself.

So please don’t just go through the motions, add a healthy dose of care to your daily Life…….both you and the world will be better for it.

be good to yourselves

  1. Care – it’s what we each need to do, isn’t it? about our self, our life, and about everything we say and do. Care about those we interact with, care about our earth, our world. One person at a time, we will change the world.

  2. Concern

    Great post David 🙂 So very much needed… CARE… especially here online where it can feel as though no-one does… everyone hiding behind their own little screen in their own little world. Words are the things that connect us all together here [and sometimes also pictures] and show us that sometimes people actually do.

    Thanks David.

    1. Hi Jean,
      Glad you liked this post, I’m very much for sharing the care. Care is certainly lacking in the world and as you mentioned “on line” can seem a little lonely. Using the right words (of encouragement) with meaning I hope make a difference. You have a great “Care Principle” there, I appreciate you taking the time to contribute (and caring).

  3. Hi David,


    Lovely post David. If we all would care, wouldn’t it be a beautiful world. When we are concerned about others, it affects their well being as well as ours. It takes more effort to go through life being self centered and unconcerned about others, than it does to project care and love. Very inspirational post.

    1. Hi Cathy,
      Thank you. What a great Care Principle you have there. Spread the “care” Cathy and keep up the great work you are doing. Thank you for your kind thoughts.

  4. Really great post David. I wished everyone in the World did care, there’s definitely lack of compassion and cold hearted people nowadays. Here in South Africa [ a bit off topic] an extremely famous celeb, posted on Twitter his friend kept threatening to commit suicide, his response was that his friend should stop looking for attention and do it. 1000’s of people agreed with him, really? People that are threatening to commit suicide often will end up doing this if they do not get the attention that they do in actual fact NEED!

    1. Hi Rochelle,
      Great to see you again.You have highlighted a classic “lack of care” situation here. Often one needs to look under the surface & determine the real problem instead of dismissing it. Share the care, the world needs it. Thank you.

  5. Hi David,

    I am a little slow here, so let me see if I can come up with something new for care. All the commenters have pretty much covered it alone with you.


    Hey, i was working with what I could, since all the reallllly goooood words were used.
    Take care and blessing to you always,

    1. Hi Debbie,
      There are many great “care” words to use and yours are right up there, thank you. Keep your pencil sharpened I will try and come up with something similar a little later. I appreciate you joining in.

  6. CARE….

    Actively Engaging

    To me the word “care” implies intimacy between individuals or with the self. To truly care about a person one needs to allow his/her own being engage (on that spiritual level) with the other person’s being. The same holds true when one cares for the self. It is definitely an action verb and in no ways a noun that is represented by tangible and intangible gifts… it is assuredly a transcendent experience that results in unconditional love.

    1. Hi Ajen,
      I Love your ‘care principle’ example. Obviously ‘care’ means a lot to you which is great. Imagine if everybody had the same amount of care…….
      Thankyou for your valued contribution.
      be good to yourself

  7. With you 100% David on the CARE ethic – in modern life the challenge is not that we dare to share but that we dare to care. The finest things aren’t things, they are values and well mannered behaviours and the people who show them.
