"Strive to be first: first to nod, first to smile, first to compliment, and first to forgive."
When I read this quote I really enjoyed it. I thought others would as well. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone acted that way? If everyone smiled and complimented each other. Wouldn't it be great if we could forgive each other like our pets or small children? They hold no grudges. Neither should we. Wouldn't it just be a wonderful world if everyone strived to make peace with others and supported and encouraged everyone we met? Everyone would simply love each other. I say let's make an example. Put your best foot forward every time. Make a difference in each others lives by being such a positive example that others can't help but notice.
We choose how we live, and how we deal with situations. We should choose the best possible outcomes, and choose to want to inspire others. Our thoughts make us, and they make our world. We can practice everyday by choosing purposely to uplift everyone we come in contact with. We should make the conscious decision that we will live a positive life, in all aspects, whatever we do. Remember to be the first!
