Every person has a power


Little Girl Doing Handstand

 

“Every person has the power to make others happy.

Some do it simply by entering a room

others by leaving the room.

Some individuals leave trails of gloom;

others, trails of joy.

Some leave trails of hate and bitterness;

others, trails of love and harmony.

Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism;

others trails of faith and optimism.

Some leave trails of criticism and resignation;

others trails of gratitude and hope.

What kind of trails do you leave?”

William Arthur Ward

 

Having read this beautiful poem, what’s your power?

Are people glad to see you come or happy to see you go?  

In other words, what kind of trail are you leaving on your path?

Leave a comment … and blaze a positive trail in someone else’s life today 🙂
