We often get so caught up in our daily routines that we forget to enjoy the journey. When you notice those around you projecting some measure of negativity, counter it with positivity. I know it’s not always easy, but become the leader by taking the lead with persistent positivity.
There isn’t a need for you to be upset, moody or depressed because someone else chooses to. Just like a bad attitude can be contagious, so is a good one. So spread it to everyone you come in contact with today. If you want to be the leader, then lead by example.
You may encounter a little apprehension from some, because we live in a world that is plagued by pessimism, anticipates mistrust, inflicted with hopelessness and lives in perpetual melancholism. As strong of a desire you may have to simply walk the other way, offer them the opportunity to love by loving them despite their personality. Some will still reject it, but they can not say that it was never offered to them.
Reject the pessimistic thought some bring into life that says, “Nothing in life is free”, because you can counter that notion with a demonstration of love. Love is free, so be generous when you give it.
Love is a product of the heart that involves the mind. We must be able to go beyond the carnal interpretations of love that tries to confine it to the physical. Physical affection is not love, but an expression of love or the desire for love.
Love and hate has similar affects on people, but goes even further when it is practices with sincerity. I only ask you to make a positive lasting impression rather than a selfish or negative one. Love is something that we can do today. So love someone today, then add to that by loving another tomorrow and so on.
Love beyond your immediate circle of family and friends, but share it with others. Take the time to consider them and their life. Check on them to see how they are doing. Do it not to say that you’re just checking in on them, but be sincere. Sincerity and consideration doesn’t require an announcement. Either way, whether you love or hate, it always finds its way back to you.
