Making things better

There are things we must nurture and protect. They make us better people. And the world is a better place for it.

Honesty is something to be encouraged. We cannot improve what we refuse to see. Many are highly practiced in the art of self-deception.

Appreciation is also important. Recognize a person's strengths, and not just their weaknesses. Be the one who builds up instead of tearing down.

Consideration goes along with this. Be mindful of others. Your actions affect them, so make sure what you do is actually for the best.

Compassion is to be highly prized. Those who care for others should never find themselves forsaken. They cannot solve the world's problems, but they can be part of the solution.

Treat others the way you wish to be treated. It is an old saying, but the longevity is due to the soundness. A caring person makes everything better just by being who they are.


  1. So very true on every point! A man must lay his foundation with integrity and build his house with love.

  2. Without a strong foundation, the building will fall. These things strengthen us for the journey. There is a long way to go...
