Temperance

My family asked me today what my New Year's goal was.  I told them to be kinder. They suggested being more tolerant.  I think that being more tolerant and patient with people does help me be kinder.  I have known for a while that it is important aspect of life to treat people as we would our favorite pet.  There are times though when it is difficult to do so.  Our favorite pet usually does not speak to us in threatening ways, judge us, bully or just say mean things about us.  Being patient may help promote tolerance when tolerance is needed.  The other thought that comes to mind is that our favorite pet does not usually bite or attack us.  I stand and fight dogs that attack me, if I have to engage in them.  I try to, first, avoid an animal that may attack or hurt me.  I still think that this may be a better idea in the long run.
