Did Maggie’s Thought for the Month get your attention? Actually, the complete thought is the following: ‘Want to live a happy life? Then always remember, what other people think about you is none of your business.’
Maggie, like many dogs, live in the moment. They listen to the people that spend the most time with them, and fulfill their basic needs. Their eyes are focused on their master, and their loyalty is unconditional. A dog knows who has their best interest at heart.
We live in a world where anyone can post thoughts about someone or send photos without a journalism degree, security check or- most importantly- a common sense license. Even if you live in a town with a population of 500, your ‘internet words’ can reach millions in one click. Cruel and distasteful emails are becoming the new norm in work places. Our children are noticing this adult behavior by using instant messaging & texting to ridicule their peers.
It is becoming more and more difficult to stay focused & loyal to thoughts & people that truly matter. Our modern day conveniences give us more time to spend with family & friends, but are we choosing the right people to spend that time with- physically & mentally?
Whose thoughts will you listen to today? Maggie & I will be listening to our own 🙂
