It’s time to change this. I’ve noticed this in myself and others a lot. I’m always picturing a future version of myself that doesn’t give in to frustration, gossip, impatience, or whatever, but that version of myself always seems to remain in the future! How I act NOW is what matters. It’s easy to look at your mistakes and push off changing until next time. What makes a difference is what you do in the moment, when you feel the emotions surging and you want to give into bad habits. Next time this happens, try to control yourself and be the version of yourself that you’ve always hoped you would become.
What is your motivation? What is your dream?
This comic has been on my to-do list for a while. It’s a very simple and very important message that too many people ignore. Please don’t text and drive. Your life and the lives of others are not worth the minutes you save by texting while driving.
Be careful what you say to certain people.
I have always believed that pretty much everyone thinks they are good. They may hurt your feelings, but it comes from a place of feeling right or like they need to speak up for some greater good. It might not make sense or be right, but the intention is rarely bad. And what about people who differ from you when it comes to political opinions. They aren’t evil, they’re just doing what they think is right (even if it’s wrong). People want to do good. It’s true. I think it’s important to take a look at that intention and have more compassion for people. Yes, we should try to influence others in positive ways, but don’t give up on them.
