This week has been one full of surprises.
By surprises I mean people I had given up on surprised me in some big ways. It seems lately I’ve discovered the people who say they are good people are really not and those who say they are not deep down really are.
Accountability is becoming such a rare thing in this world. Its hard to meet genuine people who are not wearing some sort of mask or trying to take advantage of some situation. Its hard to meet good people.
But, they exist. So when you find them, you better hold on tight. Don’t take them for granted, don’t waste time on trivial matters, don’t treat them poorly, and surprise them. The thing is that you are only get what you put out in the world. You become the company you keep. Take chances.
I’m sorry to say but social media and online dating has changed the way people communicate. It’s changed the way we treat each other. Its made us lose some of those old fashioned ways of being. It has desensitized people and given them places to hide. We spend so much time managing these things that we aren’t out in the world just simply living. Spending time with people who really matter or people who might change our lives. Constantly looking for whats next we never slow down to enjoy the moment or see what has been in front of us all along.
Remember that tomorrow is promised to no one and if you waste time you may never get the chance to make things right. Time is precious. Its easy to let it slip by.
I may not be perfect…but I know that I can honestly say that I have no regrets when it comes to people knowing that they matter to me. I treat everyone with kindness even those who may not deserve it. I have never and will never ignore someone or push them out. If someone has something to say I will always listen.
