Things are to be used — People are to be loved

Bring in the New Year on the right foot! Someone passed a note on to me. In this note, there are five things worthy of your attention. The note starts by saying, “Things are to be used, but people are to be loved.”

In 2018, watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Life is vanity without friends. Have you ever noticed the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together, and sleep together; even though they never see each other.

Friendships should be just like that. Life is vanity without friends. I want you to be my friend in 2018. Let’s stay friends in 2018. Join my mailing list so we can keep in touch.
