Life Lessons: A Few Things to Remember

There are a few things you need to remember about life. First, you can’t control the thoughts and actions of others, no matter how hard you try. Secondly, you should understand that everyone does not possess a kind spirit, nor do they have your best interest at heart. There are some really mean-spirited people in this world, and if there was one thing I could change, it would be for people to be more kind to one another, not just in our everyday lives, but through social media as well. 

I'm like a sponge; I soak up peoples' energy, the good and the not-so-good, and that applies to things I see online as well. So it's disheartening when I see the way people talk to one another - complete strangers, and it's just...it bothers me. I want people to be more mindful of what they are putting into the universe.

Be kind to one another. Don’t assume. Don’t judge people. Always remember that no one is perfect, and we are all fighting some kind of battle. Be compassionate. Be considerate. Be respectful. Love your neighbor. Don’t be an asshole. Don’t intentionally hurt people.  Be empathetic. Don’t be a bully. Treat people the way you would want to be treated. You never know what a person is going through. Speak with intention and purpose. Practice kindness often. I truly wish that people would apply these simple practices to their daily life. It would make a world of difference.
