Have a great day. Happy Tuesday! This Thought is dedicated in memory of Traci Cleverley Pink and epilepsy awareness day.
Make kindness your default……..it is said that kindness is the rent we pay for the space we occupy on the planet. In your life you will see bullies at school, bullies at play, and bullies at work…..if you do nothing, if you enable or promote their bad behaviour then you are just as much of a bully as they are. Everyone that we encounter has a lesson to teach us and a story to tell us about how to live.
The manner in which we respond to people comes down to whether we indulge our ego and allow negativity and mean spirited communication or if we are heart led and intent on leaving people better than we find them. Just as we teach our children to stand up for themselves and for others who are being mistreated….that must continue into adulthood because when we enable bad behaviour in adults we define our own humanity and we tell the world – this is ok. When we protect what we know is inherently wrong then we have sold our soul…..and the road back will not be easy.
Robin Sharma said “All too often, we believe that in order to live a truly fulfilling life we must achieve some great act or grand feat that will put us on the front covers of magazines and newspapers. Nothing could be further from the truth. A meaningful life is made up of a series of daily acts of decency and kindness, which, ironically, add up to something truly great over the course of a lifetime.”
