Stay Above The Fray!

Have you ever noticed that some people just love to create drama?  They love to stir things up by seeking attention, talking about others and can’t stand it when things seem calm.

In the movie American Gangster the main character, Frank Lucas, has a great quote. “The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room.”  Take a step back and observe this and see how many times it is true.  It is amazing to see the truth in this statement.

Today, and every day, stay above the fray. Don’t get caught up in the negative places some people will try to take you.

There is even a chance that by you staying in a calm and positive place you can help those who enjoy chaos see their negative ways and begin to make a positive change.

Either way positive wins.  It may not always seem like it but it eventually will.  It always does.

I’m cheering for you.
