How to judge someone’s character: Look at how they treat those who can’t give them anything. Look at how they treat those they don’t need or want anything from. Look at how they treat those in need of something. Do they treat them as equals? With respect and kindness? Do they help those who need it without expecting anything in the return? Or are they only interested in those who offer them something? The answers to these questions say a lot about a person.
You’ll never lose by digging deep, staying true, not giving up, building character in the crucible of challenge, breathing in, hanging on, and becoming more weighty below the surface than you are impressive above it. ~ Louie Giglio
Quote of the day.
Time is our most precious gift, to give and to receive. It’s perhaps one taken most for granted, because we’re spending it constantly. But time is one gift that is truly irreplaceable, valuable and magical. Time spent listening, comforting, loving, laughing, helping is never wasted. That time shapes our memories and our character, and those of the people around us. Time brings life alive. Time is a treasure we should share more often. We can never get it back, so we might as well spend it abundantly.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you’ll have to live. Take care of your soul. It’s the only thing you’ll have to live with.
We all make rash decisions in moments of anger. We all build upon bad habits in moments of apathy. We all hide parts of who we are in moments of insecurity. We all have regrets. And that’s ok. But what have we learnt from them? At the very least, that we could have done something differently. We could have thought before we spoke or spoken out instead of standing silent. We could have pushed ourselves ourselves further or given ourselves some credit. We could have spent more time on someone else or more time pursuing ourselves. Our thoughts, words, actions all build our character. And if we’re learning from our mistakes, we’re still on track. Pay attention to who you’re becoming. The only person guaranteed to stay with you is you.
