I try to give the benefit of the doubt to other people.

I learned that it’s better to be nice somebody. Thinking about the power of kindness and positive thinking makes me feel like I’m doing all the right things. I remember how rude certain people were to me. I feel like mean-spirited people ruin things for other people for a reason. I’m a happy person. I’ve had a lot of nice breaks in my life. I’m not the happiest person but I remind myself to smile when I have successes so I am able to enjoy things. You only get your one life. I’m trying to live more at the moment than thinking about the future. I like the present moment a lot more than planning too far into the future. I’m taking it one day at a time.
