[big]Most People Are Good[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/e6EGQFJLl04][/center][/quote]
I know it doesn't seem like it sometimes, but its true. And I'm not someone who denies the existence of evil in the world. I've seen evil and evil people, but they are the exception, not the rule.

Most people, whether liberal or conservative, whether black or white, gay or straight, Christian Muslim or atheist, or part of any other group, most people are good, decent people just trying to make it through another day.

So in your day-to-day interactions, just start with the premise that the person in front of you has good intentions. They may think or look or believe differently than you, but assume good intent and go from there.

[big]Stay Humble and Kind[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/awzNHuGqoMc][/center][/quote]
This is a tough one for some of us. But in all things and in all ways, stay humble and kind. Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie. Go ahead and feel that internal pride when you accomplish something, but stay humble and kind.

Hold the door, say please and thank you and, when necessary, I'm sorry.

[big]Stand By You[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/bwB9EMpW8eY][/center][/quote]
Look out for those around you. Take the hands of those in need and hold them in yours. When you see someone with broken wings, open up yours and lend them out. Our greatest purpose in life is to help those around us.

[big]Most Girls[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/qBB_QOZNEdc][/center][/quote]
Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful. Be like most girls. Whether you like your tiny dresses or like to keep your physique private ... just stand proud and be smart and strong and beautiful. No two of us are the same, but we are each unstoppable.

[big]This One's For The Girls[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/oTowId2CWHA][/center][/quote]
If you've ever had a broken heart or wished upon a shooting star, you are beautiful just the way you are. We are all the same inside, from one to ninety-nine. Let's start looking out for each other, m'kay?

[big]We Shall Be Free[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/Ystmk90Ba0U][/center][/quote]
There's Faith, Hope, and Love ... the greatest of these is Love. Only when the last person has died for just words that they said, can we all be free. Only when the last child cries for a crust of bread can we all be free. When we are all free to love who we choose and when we can all worship from our own kind of pews, only then can we be truly free.

And finally ...

[big]Born Free[/big]

[quote][center][media=https://youtu.be/bu3rsha1ZtI][/center][/quote]
Remember that however you leave this world, you were born free. If any government, society, company, group, or person tries to hold you down, remember that your were born free.

These are my thoughts today, expressed in music, on this 16th day of January 2023. Here in the USA we are celebrating a federal holiday today, Martin Luther King Day. My dad's company for the first time has added this day to their list of observed holidays and asked all employees to take the day and use it in service to others in honor of Martin Luther King. I think that's cool.

But this post is not about MLK. It just happens to be MLK Day here. This post is about how we see and treat others. I think the world is in desperate need of a little more kindness, humility, and service to others. These are just my thoughts today. What are yours?
I feel that revenge only makes one a bitter person, often bringing out the worst in them.

And sometimes satisfying that hurt ego and taking revenge takes years, and it’s not worth that…coz one has to sacrifice their values, ethics, and conscience to make the other person look bad, and [i]feel successful.[/i] But it’s ne’er worth one’s time.. (selling one’s soul to the devil).

I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense to anyone, but I love what you have to say, Sara.

I was watching Ron Johnson’s interview just now and this was how bad I felt for him….watching him take sides and deny certain facts.

Happy MLK day, and LOVE your message, Sara 🌸😍…we need such positivity and harmony in our lives.💜💖👍🏻
You’re such a wise lil sweetheart…Adore you! 💝 @sarabee1995
🤭 Omg…I used to muster anger against my in-laws….it only did me harm…so that’s v true @DarkHeaven

@Yulianna In the middle of a fucking war your perspective changes and understandable so. 🤗🤗🤗
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
@DarkHeaven Yup, I can actually. 🙂
@sarabee1995 it was pretty close…
I love my faith so much.

@sarabee1995 And you’re the number one reason that I overcame my fear to come back to my faith. I have a lot to ty for. Your causes are now my causes too. I will pay it forward. Love you. 🖤🤗
Most girls made me smile. I tuned you on to that one. 🖤🤗
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
@DarkHeaven Yes you did! 🙂
KiwiBird · 31-35, F
I thought it was a Federal Holiday so how come your Dad's company is celebrating it for the first time?

Great Post 🤗

@KiwiBird Theu call them bank holidays because mostly only banks and government employees get them off.
There aren't any holidays that a private employer is mandated to give you of here.

Some of us like me, who work in the private sector get a floating holiday for Federal holidays like MLK. Which means we just get an 8 hour workday credit we can take whenever we want.
KiwiBird · 31-35, F
@MethDozer That's cool getting an eight hour credit to use when you want...with your employer's blessing I assume. However It does take away the meaning of why the holiday was there in the first place. The public holidays down-under all go by their actual name so at least we know why we are getting the time off. Hours are not usually traded. If you have to work on a public holiday you get holiday pay penalty rates often double time.
MethDozer · M
@KiwiBird I get double time if I work most other observed holidays, but no employer is required to observe holidays. Paid holidays off and holiday pay is a work benefit. No employers is mandated by law to give them to you.

Well stated, and I agree!
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
@ChampagneOnIce Thank you. I've been selecting music over the last hour to go with my thoughts this morning and then as soon as I hit post, I saw your post on top of my feed. ❤️
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@sarabee1995 Must be something in the air today. :)
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
@ChampagneOnIce or the water ... :)
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
Beautiful message and love the musical touch. ❤️❤️
