It Is So Simple
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” ― Desmond Tutu
There is goodness in speaking kindly of others. There is goodness in simply being kind to others. The older I get, the more important this simple fact becomes. Yet be kind and good to others can be difficult for many.
To do so, one must let go of negative thoughts about a person.
To do so, one must consider the good things about a person.
If we measure the goodness of a person's life - large or small - significant or not - it means that person matters. It means there are things about a person which contribute in a positive way to life around them. It means we are willing to accept whatever little or large amount of goodness they possess.
Each of us have both good and bad aspects to the life we live.
Each of us have many positives to the life we live.
As you go through life, focus on the good things and the negatives will slowly fade away. I have seen many people leave this life. I have known many of them well and many others not so well. But it is the good things I choose to remember.
Yes, there are truly horrible people in this world.
Yes, there are also many good and kind people in this world.
We have to come to terms with the negative in our daily lives. Just do not use up your energy on the negative. Use your energy to build upon the positive ones in your life. Be the one that others will proclaim and a good, kind and decent person who makes life better.
You will one day eventually be measured by your own goodness.
You will one day leave a trail of good memories to be remembered by all.
Stay inspired my friends.
