Quote for the day:
A good deed is never lost: he who sows courtesy reaps friendship; and he who plants kindness gathers love.
So I’m kind of excited I have really changed the things I have been posting on my personal Facebook account and it’s really awesome seeing others spreading love and positive thinking through their pages as well! I don’t think I am the only reason that others have done this but I believe that putting good things into the world creates more good things. The best part about all this is I was in a bad place shortly before starting all this i.e. this blog and being more positive in general and was really just done with everything and everyone. Then a terrible tragedy hit in Connecticut and many innocent people lost their lives…..and it was a reality check in the sense that what am I so miserable for? sure times are tough for my family but I still have my loved one, sure we are broke but we still have food in our bellies clothes on our back and a roof over our heads, sure we just moved to a new state miles and miles away from all my family and closest friends but they are a simple phone call away!
So I decided enough is enough time to change how I am feeling! time to make an effort even if it goes unnoticed! time to make this planet a little less painful and lonely and more loving and kind! I currently set up a fan page on Facebook called just spreading some positivity I don’t have a mass of followers yet but I’m working on it! I gotta say it feels good to be doing all this and I truly hope that people start to notice and follow along! I’m not doing it for attention or praise, I’m doing it because it hurts my heart see what goes on in this world! I know that we will probably never have world peace and there will always be just plain old sick evil people in this world, but what about all the other average people? why do you feel you have to be so closed off to your fellow humans? why has it become the trend to bully and tease people instead of trying to understand and embrace them? why is it so EFFIN hard for people to just be nice?
I don’t have the answers to most of the questions above but I have a possible solution! I have a 2-year-old son and another baby on the way and I am making it my life’s work to raise my kids to be all the things that a good person should be! I will teach them the importance of life and the value of life as well. I will teach them that just because something or someone is different that what their used to does NOT mean its bad or wrong or should be feared! I believe the whole point to life is the journey you take through it and the choices you make along the way. I want my children to be able to look back on their lives and be able to say that they are proud of who they are and what they have done! I believe that in order for them to be able to do and say those things they need the tools and guidance to first!
So folks here is my new challenge to all of you if you’re a parent: stay active and a positive force in your kids lives don’t think oh my kids knows better or my kid wouldn’t do that. It’s your job to teach them never assume they will learn from experience or just know what to do children rely on their parents to set the trend for what life should be like and what’s right from wrong! To the people who don’t have kids this can apply to you as well: there are so many needy kids out there that need guidance and honestly someone who will just listen to them and make them feel that they are being heard and that they are a valid person! there are also so many organizations that help to make these connections possible so why not? I’m a strong believer in the children are our future and if that’s true then we better make sure these kids know how to be good people and keep this planet spinning!
