Be Nice, Anyway

Today's post is brought to you by our sponsors, good intentions and snarky attitudes. Maybe it's just me, but when I feel loving towards the world and it snaps back, it takes the wind out of my sails. I get that defeated, why bother anyway feeling.

I had someone be intentionally creepy to me today and it took me by surprise.

The incident brought me face to face with an important principle in wanting to reach out to others: deserving it cannot be a factor. If we changed our behavior based on how others treat us, we become reactionary. Defensive.

I want to live my life on the offense. Intentional.

It's a quick thought at the end of a busy day, but it's been the theme over and over for me.
