Note to Self: Set an Example
As we take our next steps, let us be aware.Whether you like it or not, the people around you listen to what you say and watch what you do. It could be your kids, siblings, coworkers, neighbors, or a random stranger.
You never who's watching.
What kind of example are you setting?
#1 Is it the one where others say, "I don't want to be like that person."
#2 Or is it, "I want to be like that. How can I be like that? I want to be a better person."
In the last month I've thought these two things about different people (they don't know it). Even the people I don't want to be like inspire me to be better. And those who are inspirational will forever remain in my gratitude.
I will not try to be like anyone because to copy someone else is plagiarism (pause for my funny thought). I will strive to be the best version of myself I can be.
Be the best version of yourself! And in doing so, you will unknowingly inspire others.
To Shadow: Thank you for setting the example of staying true to yourself from beginning to the very end of life. I will never forget that.
To a wonderful little Boy: Thank you for setting the example of growing up knowing who you are even when others want to label you. You know who you are and thats all that matters.
Has someone set an example to you? What was it and why has it left a lasting impression.
Got the world figured out?
I did, until it came crashing down. I had no choice but to start over and rebuild.
