“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
We live in a world full of negativism. It is increasingly easy for people to vent, to complain, to blame, and to defending their actions. From social media to the evening news . . . negativity is pervasive in our world.
It is up to each of us to decide how we respond to the events in the world around us. We must be discipline to be aware of the world in which we live, but to not allow it to define us.
We listen to others . . . we hear their concerns, complaints, and suggestions . . . but we fight the battle to keep our own minds above the line. We don’t permit others to bring us down – to pull us below the line.
We must have filters – filters that separate the dirt from the important information. Our filters permit us to get to the heart of the issue without being pulled into the mud. Our filers create solutions to problems without internalizing them, without living the problem.
Be intentional today; specifically catch yourself when you permit others to walk through your life with their dirty feet. Be discipline today; live a life of service, hope, and purpose.
