Be Kind

Be Kind.....I've always thought it was easier to not be kind. You have to make a conscious effort to say something nice to other people. That kind and uplifting comment that you could make to your spouse, sibling, parent, coworker or just the person you pass on the street...we never know how much that means to the other person. We have no idea what kind of an impact we can make on others lives. In that effort to reach out to another person and to share just that human connection...that's what it's all about to me.

Accept Differences

Accepting accept our choice to be different from others. I think a lot of people find me to be anti-social. That's not always the case. I tend to find with the life experiences that I have had over the years, they  have impacted me more than I even realize. I don't have the tolerance with the petty and drama that people seem to surround themselves with. I lost my dad to lung cancer when I was 28 years old. I lost my oldest brother to complications of kidney failure when I was 35 years old. When you've been through a personal tragedy such as death, it changes you more than you realize. For those who've never experienced the loss of a loved one, you are the lucky few.
