Every day my friend Tom likes to post up encouraging or inspirational posts on Facebook. I look forward to these posts every day. I don’t think we always know that doing little things like this can have such an impact on someone else’s life. For the past 3 years I have been in a struggle between choosing to save a relationship or do what I know is right. Wednesday it finally all came to a head. Was I going to do what was easy or what was right? In the end it came down to my integrity and values. What message would I be sending my girls if I did not stand up for what I know is the right thing to do? If the outcome is not what I hope for, in the end, I will still feel good about my decision, because I know in my heart it was the right thing to do. Reading this Tom’s daily helped give me the extra strength I needed to push through and do what I needed to do without regret. I thought I would share it today in case anyone else needs that extra encouragement :) Have a happy weekend!
“For those who think doing the right thing can sometimes be wrong, stay strong. Doing the right thing is exactly what we are meant to do. We do it not for anyone other than ourselves and we do it because its what makes us better. Doing right can be difficult, but can also be the most rewarding thing we can do. Doing right doesn't make you weak, on the contrary it makes for a confident showing of the persons we know we are. Everybody struggles but everybody knows the difference between what's right and what's wrong. Keep it simple and level headed.”
