promote what you love

I ran across this wonderful quote this weekend and I could not love it more. The older I get the more I realize that this world is just filled with hate. So much hate and definitely not enough love. I am a very positive person. I do my best to keep my posts positive and cheerful not only on my blog but on all forms of social media. I am not saying that I'm perfect and I never say anything negative or never complain but I try to keep it to myself or I vent to my husband or best friend. This quote should definitely be taken more seriously by everyone. Recently, it seems like Facebook is getting worse and worse. I'm finding myself wondering why I even have a Facebook still. It only makes me sad and upset when I'm on there. Yeah, there are  few people who I love being able to keep up with but most of the time I find myself saddened by the hate I see coming out of people. There's absolutely no need for it. People need to spread love not hate. Spread peace and acceptance rather than complaints and negativity. 

I want to show people love and positivity. I want to be a good role model. I want to influence others to do the same. I definitely have some things I need to work on and I plan to. I plan to be the light that brightens the darkness of the world. I want to bring smiles to people's faces and spread love and kindness.

I'll leave you with some of my favorite quotes.

"Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection and take delight in honoring each other." 
 -Romans 12:9-10-

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
-Mahatma Gandhi-

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” 
-Abraham Lincoln-

  1. One day I hope that people can truly be this way. What a simple life. Be good, do good, feel good. Being kind and considerate, value others' and allow them their opinions without argument (of course this is in line with everyone having a general sense of morals and ethics).
    All this to say, great post.
