Pro-action vs Re-action

This made me think of my Grandpa Jackson.

He would tell me about his Dog. He always had a dog.

He would say that his Dog was the Best dog.

He would tell me that his Dog was always a Good dog.

I would point out that his Dog was peeing on the floor.

He would just laugh and say, “well maybe right now, but he won’t get better if you focus on what he’s done wrong.”

I think this is a good lesson for today.

We get bombarded by faults. What is: Wrong, Bad, Illegal, and Salacious seems to get all the attention. People seek attention, and behavior is becoming more and more bizarre.

Today I’m grateful for reminders of my Grandfather, and opportunities to treat people as they could be.
