The other night I watched Disney’s new version of Cinderella. I really appreciated the way the main character was taught, “. . . have courage and be kind.” It’s easy to see in that movie how living that principle created within Cinderella a spirit of higher, positive energy. I like how the movie ends by saying that we can’t avoid negative, malicious people in our lives, but we can choose to create the best outcomes out of every situation by using kindness and love.
You have the power to change the world around you by what you choose to think about the people around you and how you choose to treat them. There is great power in focusing on the best attributes of your associates. There is also great power in choosing to be courageous and kind no matter how you are treated.
