Self Test!

This part of an article and these quotes made me stop and think. I do feel that it is good to do some Self Tests once in awhile, to see how we are doing. Try them out yourself!

Respect for Others and Ourselves

“Ask yourself these questions: Am I an example of respect in my home by the way I treat those I love the most? What is my demeanor during a sports event? If my child has a disagreement with a teacher, coach, or peer, do I listen to both sides of the issue? Do I show respect for the property of others as well as take care of my own? How do I respond to others with whom I disagree in matters of religion, lifestyle, or politics? “As parents and leaders exemplify and teach respect for others, we confirm in the hearts of our children that each of us is truly a child of God and all are brothers and sisters through eternity. We will focus on the things we have in common—on the qualities of heart that bind the family of God together, rather than on our differences.”

" You are who you are when no one is looking!"

These make you think!

“ Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”
— Oscar Wilde

“ I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.”
— Anna Freud

“ Maturity begins to grow when you can sense your concern for others outweighing your concern for yourself” -John MacNaughton

I hope these gave you a chance (like me) to reflect on your life and your choices. Good night!
