A friend sent this to me and I felt it was very relevent for the start of the New Year.
YOUR LIFE'S TRAIL SHOULD SPEAK FOR YOU
Whether you know it or not, someone, somewhere, is watching you handle your life.
It could be a member of your family, a business associate, a casual acquaintance, or perhaps someone you don't even know. That being the case, are you leaving trails of which you are not ashamed?
Every person has the power to make others happy. Some do it by simply entering a room, others by leaving it. I have a friend who leaves a trail of great enthusiasm, hours after a phone call from her I still feel great. Another friend leaves a trail of optimism. Another, only a brief conversation with her and I feel better.
One friend enriches my day by leaving a trail of kindness. Cheerful smiles are her trademark. Some individuals leave trails of gloom. Others leave trails of joy. Some leave trails of hate and bitterness, others leave trails of love and harmony. Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism, criticism and resignation, others leave trails of faith and optimism, gratitude and hope.
What kind of trails do you leave?
What kind do you want to leave behind this year?
