Promise of a new Day

The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds, and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.
—Florence Scovel Shinn—

We plant the seeds of the bounty we’ll reap by every action we take. We teach others how to treat us by our treatment of them coupled of our level of self-respect.

Never should we be surprised at the level of comfort or discomfort we experience in our interactions with others. We have invited it.
Fortunately, we are in control of our own behavior, which means we have the choice to act responsibility with respect for others every moment of our lives. We can be

certain that we will be treated in similar fashion throughout the day. The terms of life are simple when defined in this way. We get what’s our due—and we’ve prearranged it ourselves.
It’s seldom that circumstances discourage us as mush as our relations with others. Most often our frustrations or depressions are people centered. The good news is that we have the capability to favorably influence all outcomes that involves other persons. At every opportunity, remember the treatment that we each desire and offer that to others.
I am in command of my behavior today. It will invite similar behavior today. It will invite similar reaction. I’ll put my best foot forward.
