There is one Way of the World I would love to change, or see it change during my lifetime. I can see tiny sparks of it now among my own friends that do have these qualities.
The world would be so much nicer if the loyalty and integrity of someone became qualities people liked more than they liked the popularity of someone else with the integrity of a grub.
People that honor their friends and treat others with kindness and understanding are much more attractive to me than the popular person that is continually forgiven for their egregious transgressions, just because they might be fun or outwardly pretty.
When I witness someone that lives life so that others may live life in the spotlight right along with them, I raise that person up. When I hear someone that speaks more of others than they do of themselves, I raise that person up.
Why chase a fading star that only twinkles when your own light shines upon it, when you might already have a beautifully perfect shining star tucked safely in the fold of your palm? That star is YOU and your light is meant for so much more than to just be a reflection for a rock that can never shine back on it’s own.
