Wisdom From My Friend Sakoieta
I had a discussion with a person a short while ago telling me that they believe without the proper family background we cannot make it in this world successfully. I had to think about that and really came up with this thought that I believe only one type of background is important and it has been proven to be so. Were we kind? Were we respectful? Were we thoughful and considerate of others? If we have learned to respect ourselves and treat ourselves in this manner then we have the proper background. If we show these same characteristics to others it will show in what we say and do and how we say and do things. It will determine where we succeed or fail. Having a good heart and spirit is something anyone can have. It is the best background. Never goad, never trample, never cause another person to fail. When we lift others we are lifted. When we respect others, respect comes to us as well. When we love others, then love abounds. There is nothing more important than having that type of background.
