Once in a while you find a quote that just sticks with you and becomes a part of you. I’ve had many quotes that I’ve loved over the years but none that have stuck with me as much as the one below has. It has become my motto, and the words which I strive to live by.
It’s so simple, isn’t it?
“Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.”
Although it is a simple concept it can be difficult to remember at times, especially when interacting on social media or the internet in general. People seem so quick to criticize and be combative and they spend so much energy tearing others down. What if they took that same energy and did something great with it? Perhaps we would see less political smear campaigns, and, more of what charities and organizations the politicians volunteer at and support. Wouldn’t the world be a better (and happier) place?
I know that I cannot change the actions of others, but I can choose how I conduct myself; and, I choose to promote what I love instead of bashing what I hate.
