Every time I turn on the news it’s one incredibly sad story after the next! The news seems to be reporting every horrific happening in the world! It makes me stop and take pause and say - is there anything good happening in my community and the world?? I know in my heart, there are a lot of good things happening in my community and the world!
I truly believe the news, reality shows and social media have a HUGE impact on how we live our lives, how we treat people and how we think! We judge and compare our lives to the tiny snippets we see on Facebook or Instagram. We get mad and infuriated at our country based on what the news feeds us and what craziness is tweeted! I know I am not the only one who feels this way!
So what can we do? Let’s all be a part of a Solution and not a continuation of the Problem! Let’s all change the narrative! First, turn off the boob tube! Enough of being fed stories of unrealistic lives and crazy news! Second, get out into your community and do some good! Volunteer at the hospital, stop into your local nursing home with a bouquet of flowers and say hello to a stranger passing by! Finally let’s just be Kind Humans!
Before we hit send or speak out to quickly, pause for one minute! Ask yourself the following - Is this how I want to be treated? Am I being a continuation of the problem or am I being a part of the Solution? Hopefully it is the Solution! Go out today and do something nice for someone! Be a Kind Human!
Live the Golden Rule - Treat Others Like You Want to be Treated!
