Be The One

Standard

Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.
Marvin J. Ashton 
I love quotes so I was very excited when  https://fallinginlovewithfreedom.wordpress.com/ nominated me for the 3 day quote challenge. Quotes inspire and remind us to continually strive to be better. This quote in particular is so appropriate in these ever changing times when we seem to be using our tongues as a means to attack. This is a reminder to see beyond someone’s beliefs, opinions or whatever else and see them for who they are on the inside. Actively look for something good and always treat people with respect. Our job is not to determine if they deserve it but rather to set an example by treating people with understanding and kindness, the way we ourselves would want to be treated. That is my challenge for all of us today. Let’s do this thing and leave everyone better than we came across them.

  1. Agreed! I try to live by this idea, but some days require more diligence than others, especially when the kindness isn’t always returned. Like the quote, “not every day may be good, but there is something good in every day”, I like to think the same about people and try to see (or bring out) the better in them. Thank you for sharing this 🙂
