I’ve done a lot of things to please other people. And I’m not referring to being generous and selfless; I’m referring to making decisions regarding my own life that really didn’t pertain to anyone else’s journey… only because I cared too much about what the other person thought of me.
Ever have a day that just seemed to never ever end?
Every once in awhile I have one of those days. Days where everything seems to suck and the world feels like it’s playing a joke on me and I just want to go home and go to bed. (you feel me? lol) But even when I drive home in the traffic, shake my fists angrily in the sky, and fall face down on my bed when it’s time to go to sleep – I try to remember one question:
What did I do to make a positive impact in someone’s life today?
Life is just too short to be rude to people you don’t know. Its too short to be passive aggressive instead of direct. It is too short to hold a grudge, it is too short to ignore opportunity, and it is way too short to wish it was all over.
Why let other people tell you what you should do with the rest of your days? Why ignore the ones you love in order to serve the ones you don’t?
