It’s been quite the year, and it’s only October. While it has been an insightful time of growth and self discovery, I still can’t help but feel discouraged and saddened by what is going on in the world around us. The negativity in the United States is getting worse, which only fuels more anger and resentment. There is always someone to point the finger at and someone to criticize. Where is the love?
I’ve been growing tired of living in a world that seems to only care about other people and major problems in the face of tragedy…. and that I’m becoming desensitized to such events as they happen so often. Every few months there is something worse than the last. What are we all doing on the days when there isn’t a major tragedy or natural disaster?
Each and every small action we take matters.
Let’s think about our neighbors every day, not just when people get hurt, please. I hope we begin to see more action, and less social media statuses and complaints. Kindness doesn’t need to be talked about, either. It just happens.
Actions speak louder than words.
We can help others, spread kindness, volunteer, and advocate for what we believe in 365 days a year- not just when there are mass shootings, deaths, and natural disasters.
