Lately I’ve seemed to notice the not-so-nice words of people. I don’t know why I”m even more in tune to the negative people around me, but now that I’m picking up on it, I’m going to do my best to combat it. Efforts will include more smiling, not clutching my phone at every moment, listening to tales of whatever. And encouraging them to go for whatever it is they’re dreaming about, no matter how silly it might seem. Because it all matters and the people around me matter, even if I haven’t fully realized it.
