“When you

are content

to be simply


and don’t

compare or compete,

everyone will

respect you.”


-Lao Tzu


You may belong because you have similarities,

but do not try to fit in by compromising your integrity.

Today, do not do a kindness because you believe

that it will score Brownie points with others,

that it will gain you membership and respect.

Today, be yourself, be the person others want to be like.

Today, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

Kindness from the heart will earn you respect.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.
