Every man has a right to be valued by his best moment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
While the above statement is true in and of itself we must be cautious of what we're allowing everyone to see. Being mindful of the words we speak, the behaviors we execute, and the actions we take will shape our character and others' perspective about who we are.
If we're having more bad moments than good moments and others' perspective of us seems to be flawed in our minds, perhaps we should do something about the bad moments. When you fail to control your temper in the midst of adversity or crumble under every tempest life blows your way, it will leave the impression you're a person not in control of your emotions.
It's oftentimes challenging to deal with people who have difficulty managing their emotions and presenting themselves as stable and reliable. Just as you have the right to be valued by your best moments, you also have the responsibility to work to have "best moments."
Whether you need to take time to think through a situation, pray over it and wait for guidance, or simply opt out of it the outcome of the of that moment is up to you. How you are perceived by others and how you feel about the moment is entirely under your control. What will you do under pressure?
Take every moment one step at a time during this week. Think about the impressions you want to leave. And remember that we are called to love one another as Christ loves us. John 13:34
