One thing I have learned over the past 18 months is that recognizing the core basic values that are missing in and I want to add to myself is the first step. I might not like the person I once was, but I do like the person that I am becoming. Does that mean my journey of change is over. Of course not. It is just beginning as I see what I like about me and want to add more of, and the things I don't care for and want to remove. Good luck on your journey>
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
