The good in others

Believe in the good that exists in all human beings. Never assume you know the way someone will react to a situation or believe that you understand a person enough to make assumptions about their future choices or decisions. Negativity can only make a situation worse (and if I say, "an already bad situation worse", then I'm being negative).

My Dad always says, "When you assume, you make an Ass out of You and Me", and that's exactly the way I felt last night. I assumed something about one of my tenants and it turned out to be the total opposite. When I realized how much I had been thinking negatively about the situation, I felt grateful for the opportunity to realize my mistake.

  1. Positivity is our nature. Our nature is like the sun, so we should positively shine and never whine.

    Easier said than done, but if we don’t do it we will be ‘undone’ by our own inertia. We are either getting better or getting worse; there is no such thing as the status quo.
