A little sound advice from Sparkpeople:
Transmitting light through our actions.
Are you a candle or a mirror?
Most people are somewhere in the middle.
This quote reminds us of the importance of our actions. The example you set (as a mirror) is a way of sharing how you feel based on your behaviors. Gossiping, complaining, and being pessimistic show those in your life that you are unhappy and feeling low. The same is true for the opposite behaviors.
Positive, affirming comments transmit to the world that you are happy, friendly, and optimistic.
What is your mirror reflecting?
Let your actions reflect your true beliefs and values.
