Doing the Right Thing - What Would It Be Like?

What if today I decided to do the right thing?

What if you decided to do the right thing?

What if, just for today, we all decided to do the right thing?

I mean really and truly, all day. No excuses.

("Because that's just the way it is…" would be the first excuse struck from the list.)

What if we…
  • Walked to the coffee shop, instead of drove...?
  • Were silent instead of gossiped...?
  • Forgave instead of argued...?
  • Loved instead of blamed...?
  • Helped instead of ignored…?
  • Insisted on kindness instead of tolerating cruelty?
  • Said "No" to injustice instead of "Well, there's nothing I can do about it…"?
  • Disobeyed instead of capitulated…?
It might be hard, but it might feel really good. It might make a difference. It might bring light.

It might be habit forming.
