enough of the fingerwaggin

Isn't is strange how the things we easily get frustrated with in other people a lot of times, are the very things that we maybe aren't happy about in ourselves? Everyone has faults, many of them. Some are great some are small but there still faults. I'm learning to be less of a " fingerwagger" and more of a listener, observer and a lover. Lead by example. Don't be so quick to critizice, look inside your own life first for improvement. Others will be lead to true inspiration and perhaps admiration of your lifestyle and maybe that will ignite a small spark of change in their lives. Be different, be changed, challenge yourself to bring out the very best in someone and encourage them to look for the best in themselves. Always give someone a benefit of a doubt and a second chance. Always hope. Never give up on the impossible, you never know when life might take them for a ride back around. Pursue what is right, don't settle for second best. Love when it hurts, when its not warm fuzzy butterflies, but maybe painful choices. Enjoy the time you infest into friendships. Friendships are livelong treasures you only find in a gold box once.

Just some random words of encouragement. Hope you all have a blessed evening!

It is always good to assume too that when someone gives you that fake looking smile, they probably could just use a hug rather than the "How are you?" that morning.....
