Quote on Loving...

“A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is a mirror.”
~Ken Keyes Jr.

Something to remember. We can acknowledge the fact that misery and unhappiness exists, but determine for ourselves whether or not to let it color our interactions with others. Just because you encounter people who are hostile, doesn't mean that you have to become so to defend yourself.

And, I've learned that if I go out and encountering more than the usual amount of negativity, maybe it's not them, it's me. [That means that it's time to regroup, and readjust my attitude!]

The tricky part for me is to go with my heart, care about people, and still protect myself against the occasional hardened troll who hates those of us who still can smile :-).

Another quote for the monitor and mirror ...
