Day 8 - Golden Rule

One of my favorite rules is the Golden Rule. I truly believe in treating people the way you would want to be treated. Especially those in need. Some would say it has maybe led to times when I have been taken advantage of, but I would say it's the human part of me that truly believes there is good in all people. Sometimes it takes time to see the good comes full circle.

I have taken the "True Colors" assessment and supposedly I am pretty equal in blue, gold and green. I am sensitive, want the best for everyone, and can be emotional ( not because I am a baby) but because I am passionate and truly believe everyone can succeed. I am organized and well I want to solve problems and sometimes I am not the most patient. (All of these are descriptors of those colors) 
Those around would say I was all blue.... Maybe I like that quality, maybe I like to think we all live by the Golden Rule. 
Unfortunately I know it's not always true, so my next go to is the Serenity Prayer. This prayer sits behind my desk and when I am stuck, when I feel like I could erupt I take a breath and read it. It reminds me that it is out of my hands and I must let it go. 

Work, life, and the world around us can sometimes cloud the good, sometimes make people forget the "Golden Rule," and forget to accept what cannot be changed and courage to change what can. Life "springs forward" and we continue the cycle of trying to figure what will be. 

Well another favorite is "Que Sera, Sera, whatever will be, will be" I want to dedicate this blog to my baby brother. That he will remember to pray the serenity prayer and sing the lyrics to Que Sera, Sera. That he believes in the good of people and that this too shall pass. 
To everyone like myself, wishing for just an extra weekend day to get it all done- I also want to share my three favorite go-to's and that tomorrow when it all starts you find yourself singing "Que Sera, Sera." 


  1. Yesi you are a very kind person. There should be more people like you in the world!

  2. My school teaches a character program with four components: honesty, kind and caring, responsibility and respect. The overarching theme of the whole program is the golden rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated. I love hearing my students say those words!
