Imagine what would happen if you were disrespectful, rude and insulting to another person, and yet that person offered you nothing but kindness, respect and gratitude in return. How long would you be able to maintain such a negative approach?
Probably not very long, for your negativity would soon be overwhelmed by the sincere kindness being returned to you. In the same way, you can overwhelm the negativity that comes your way.
Respond to life with kindness, with joy, with positive, productive action and enthusiasm. Overwhelm the difficult world with goodness and joy.
GOOD MORNING !
I’m all about causing a little revolution against disrespectful and rude people. They come in all sizes and shapes. They are everywhere we go some days. We really do need to fight back.
When my children were young I discovered that when they were really out of sorts and grumpy there was always a reason.
Most of the time they’d had a bad day and were upset. The bad side of things was that when they were unhappy they made everyone else unhappy too.
The good side of things was that a hug and a cookie from mom could make the whole word seem a little brighter.
We can’t give every one a hug and a cookie, but we can be kind, gentle and compassionate even to the grouches we meet.
Hope you will join my revolution !
It is a grand solution
To the pollution
Of rude and disrespectful contamination
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Some of the shells that wash up on the beach were once very beautiful. We don't know what kind of journey they had to take to get them in their fragile condition. The same is true for people. Be kind.
Work as if everything depends on you.
Pray as if everything depends on God.
