Day 8 – A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
In a world full of people who couldn’t care less, be someone who couldn’t care more.
be kind. love someone who doesn’t deserve it. treat the world as you’d wish for it to treat you. don’t react to hatred with hatred. smother it with love. it’s one of the most difficult things to do but the world would be a much better place if we all tried just a little bit harder.
you hear words like this a lot. but it’s not easy to find people who actually follow through with them. i struggle every day. i catch myself, but i’m also sometimes too late. i can honestly say though that i try. i do my very best to live by this & i think there is something to be said for a person who keeps trying. nobody is perfect. i am also going to try my very best to instill this into madison. to imprint kindness on her heart. i want her above all to be a loving & gentle spirit, who cares for other people. it’s a rare thing to find these days, especially in this city we live in. i pray everyday for her. & for my husband. in his line of work, i think it is even harder for him. & i pray for myself that i can lead by example – i hope that when people think of us, they think good happy thoughts. we have gone through a lot in our many years together & i believe we have changed & come around ten fold – we are better humans than we used to be. for our daughters sake i hope we continue to grow & to learn & stay on this path.
