Thought to ponder...

As you may know, I am an optimist and today, a friend of mine sent me a quote that outlined what I aspire to live every day:


I am the decisive element
"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element.It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized.If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."
--Goethe
