Reflection of the World

You ARE the reflection of the world. When people meet you, you represent the world to them. You will help them decide if the world is a lovely place or a terrible one. You will always be remembered as a happy and good person, or you can be remembered as a negative thinking person.

You are that powerful to influence others. So, when you do meet your family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances, remember how you deal with them will be their view of the world.

As the old cliche goes, "Treat people the way you want to be treated"--with respect.

This is awesome!
