In a time we desperately need to come together, I realize the difference each and everyone of us can play. It only takes one aggressive, angry person to ruin the day for the entire bunch. Even if you have the best intentions, negative tone sets the mood. It causes anxiety and a sense of dread and uneasiness for everyone around. I believe the opposite is true as well. A good attitude, kindness and positivity are contagious and can spread just as easily if we allow it to. Not only do we have to be very careful about who we spend time with, we also have to walk away from someone who is simply in a bad mood. Don’t become it, rise above it. I’ve always said, if you don’t like the rules of the game, just don’t play.
