You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
I needed to hear and read this. Yesterday's tragedy in Boston felt like the cherry on top of the pile of human and animal horrors posted daily on Facebook and other social networks. I'd been feeling blue lately, dragged down by all the negativity swirling around in cyberspace. When I first met Mr. Wild Dingo, I was shocked to learn that though he's always up to speed on every current event, he never watched the evening news. And now I know why. It drains you of hope, progress, productivity and just generally feeling good. The most successful people I know don't have time for negativity or anger. They move forward and stay focused on their goals. The sooner we do that, the better.
