A Few Words From A Friend To Help You Stay Positive
A friend of mine sent me this today and I want to share it with you. XO "A few weeks ago I was sitting in line at a drive-up waiting to order breakfast. I was running late and was irritated at the world for my tardiness. The woman directly in front of me received the brunt of my irritation. I hated her car. I hated her hair. She irritated me in every way, even though I knew nothing about her. She was certainly inferior to me as was evidenced by how slowly she went through the motions of ordering, paying and leaving. "When I finally got to the window, I held out my money with a scowl on my face, only to be informed that the very same person I disliked so much had paid for my breakfast. "I was laid low. "I had to pull over because I couldnâ€™t see through the tears. I chose one way (the wrong way) to view the world around me and she showed me the right way. I was completely humbled and made a conscious effort to let this strangerâ€™s example influence how I approached the rest of my week. Iâ€™m intensely grateful for this gift. Not just the meal, but the reminder that Iâ€™m not the center of the universe. There are far greater things than self. "Thank you angel at the drive-up."
