Someone sent the following piece to me. It is a reminder that we can really only change one person -- ourselves. But that is enough!
"The good you find in others, is
in you too.
The faults you find in others, are your faults as well.
After all, TO RECOGNISE SOMETHING YOU MUST KNOWN IT
The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well.
The beauty you see around you, is your beauty.
The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing you the person you are.
To change your world, you must change yourself.
To blame and complain will only make matters worse.
Whatever you care about, is your responsibility.
What you see in others, will show in yourself.
See the best in others, and you will be your best.
Give to others, and you give to yourself.
Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.
Admire creativity, and you will be creative.
Love, and you will be loved.
Seek to understand, and you will be understood.
Listen, and your voice will be heard.
Teach, and you will learn.
Show your best face to the mirror, and you'll be happy with the face
looking back at you."
