Day 4: Good Examples (30 Days of Gratitude)

“Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.”
—Marcus Aurelius

I want to be a good person, but I regularly fall short. I strive to love others and show kindness, but sometimes I choose to be selfish instead. I have many weaknesses.

For this reason I’m grateful for good examples. I’m surrounded by many great people I want to emulate. I find good examples in the books and talks I read. Sometimes I learn from people who are wildly successful, but more often than not I’m taught by an “ordinary” person living their life in an extraordinary way.

It’s one thing to talk about virtues. It’s another to actually live them. I’m thankful for those who walk the talk.

I am grateful for good examples.
