- "Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness."
Saw this on a web page discussing quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. IMHO... it is profound in it's simplicity. In today's world it's easy to become cynical and bitter. Can't turn on the news or fire up the computer without being bombarded with negative news about how we as humans treat each other and our planet. Truth be told...it's incredibly hard to stay positive if you pay attention to the ugliness. However, It's just as easy to do what we can as individuals to combat the ugliness be seeking to spend every day being kind. Focusing on the positive. So what if you don't care for the outfit a person has on...so what if they look "different". Just as easy to toss out a smile and a kind word as it is to sneer or whisper behind their back.
Can't control the world...but we can control ourselves and how we impact our environment.
I'll get off my soap box now.
Smile....you never know who's looking....or who needs to see it.
