Friday. An interesting and different week. A conference that ended with 2 speakers to make one stand up and applaud. Now that’s inspirational.
One thing they both showed in their manner and words, consideration for others runs through their motivation. It comes out in how they spoke of difficulties and overcoming them together, pride in others achievements.
A while ago, chatting to a young woman who said she wished she had better manners, and described the airs and graces of some rather showy young women. She was driving as we chatted. Then we came to one of those big circles at a multi-street intersection. She stopped and waved an elderly woman over the road, she looked as though she had stood there for a bit, nervous to step off the pavement.
My immediate reaction was, this youngster already has all she needs in terms of manners. She is considerate of others, it’s built in. The other is not really manners, it is ways of behaving to reinforce one’s own superiority. To me a huge difference.
So that’s the theme for the weekend.
Have fun, create a post, and leave a message here. If WordPress and LetterDash are both up all weekend I’ll try to do a roundup on Sunday. (Poor Letterdash staff, problems they couldn’t control kept them offline)
