Would you make a difference? Would you be caring and compassionate, lovable and fun? Would you be kind? Would you treat people with respect? Would you do for others? Would you help someone in need?
Or would you be selfish and uncaring? Envious or jealous? Do you put on a happy face to the world but in your heart carry malice and hate?
WORDS ARE SO POWERFUL!
Yesterday I had a conversation with an ole' friend from high school. I hadn't spoken to her in a few years but I keep up with her on social media.
On the internet she seemed to be happy and full of life. Always cheerful and positive toward others. But when I spoke to her on the phone, I saw a different side of her.
She let loose a bit and sadly spent most of our conversation gossiping about others, hating on other people's kids—imagine that—and talking about all the material things, in life, she didn't have.
Not trying to get all philosophical on you but this simple quote made me think of her, about the world we live in and about life.
IF THE WORLD WAS BLIND, HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD YOU IMPRESS?
Some people spend their days impressing others with spiritual and motivational quotes, beautiful images of themselves, their cars, their homes, their vacations, and while there's nothing wrong with that, to an extent—hence the photo above (because I'm no exception)—those are the things we visually see.
But what about the things people cannot see?
I can tell you about myself...
I am far from perfect, I make mistakes every single day; but caring, kind, nice, compassionate, loving, generous... are just few descriptive words I, myself, can tell you who I proudly am. That's who I am when the world is watching... and even when the world is not.
WHO ARE YOU WHEN THE WORLD IS NOT WATCHING?
When you let loose and the true 'you' comes out. It takes more effort to be kind—in public—than it does in the privacy of your heart. Don't just talk the talk, walk the walk, because it goes full circle.
