I talk a ton about how we need to be grateful
and appreciative of all of the things we have
in our own lives but I'm going to talk about something
a little different in this blog.
I wish that people understood that the way you treat
others is the way that you will one day be treated.
I catch myself and my friends saying something mean about
someone or doing something disrespectful and I think to myself
'How would that make me feel if that was said/done to me?'
Or if you say something mean about someone and then the next
day you are told that so and so said something mean about you
and you are so upset that they would say that about
innocent you. Well, I'm sorry deary, but just yesterday
you were saying the same thing about someone else.
This is a note to myself and to all my readers,
it's so cliche' but 'treat others how you would want
to be treated' because, someday, you'll be put into
the spotlight about how you've treated friends, family,
co-workers, police officers, anyone.
Also, if you hear others talking about people behind their
backs, stick up for that person instead of joining in with the
gossip. Wouldn't you love to know that someone stood up for
you when people were saying nasty things about you?
So, next time you're out to eat and your server is a little
slow with getting your order in or refilling your drink,
don't say something mean about them.
1) understand that they may be going through a really hard time
and 2) imagine how it would feel if someone pointed out your flaws
in the middle of a public place
This concept can obviously be applied to anyone in just about
any situation, take time and think before you join in on the
morning gossip at work or out with your friends.
In other news, I'm headed to North Carolina with my friend
RJR! We're headed there for the week! Check out my journal
while we're on the road here!
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
