Welcome to this edition of The Metro Message.....I hope you all had a wonderful weekend filled with a lot of fun and relaxation. Many of us try so very hard to improve ourselves and change the person we are for the better. We learn more to become smarter and more educated. We exercise to become more fit and energetic. We talk a certain way to sound more professional or to stand out. We dress the part to look great and appear more successful. We buy the things we think we want to give us joy and happiness. We surround ourselves by people we want to impress or inspire. Now, all of these things can be good to a certain degree. They can be healthy and wise things to do. This is just a reminder to remember to always be you.
Always, Be understanding to your enemies.
Be loyal to your friends.
Be strong enough to face the world each day.
Be weak enough to know you cannot do everything alone.
Always, Be generous to those who need your help. Be frugal with that you need yourself.
Be wise enough to know that you do not know everything.
Be smart enough to continue learning.
Always, Be willing to share your joys.
Be willing to share the sorrows of others.
Be a leader when you see a path others have missed.Be a follower when you are shrouded by the mists of uncertainty.
Always, Be first to congratulate an opponent who succeeds.
Be last to criticize a colleague who fails.
Be sure where your next step will fall, so that you will not tumble.
Be sure of your final destination, by setting your goals along the way.
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF
