It is the seemingly small things in life that make a difference.
We live in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. It seems there isn’t time to stop and reflect on all the good surrounding us. If we were to rely on news reports, we would be drowned in darkness designed to draw our attention. Stories capture our mindfulness because they are rare and unusual. In innocence, we begin to sense the headlines are an account of real life.
Adding to the 24-hour news, our free time is often filled with social media that has moved us away from personal interaction. Contributors glamorize life and remove essential components of effective communication. Commenters freely exchange as if humanity no longer existed.
If the future seems to be clouding over a rich history of days gone by, be assured it isn’t. The sun is shining brightly on a world filled with opportunity. A light exposing a collection of wonderful kindhearted people who give of themselves so that others can feel someone cares.
Caring is the magic of a joy-filled day. The secret passion that guides our way, clearing cluttered paths of opportunity. It is the power behind encouragement helping us reach our dreams just as we were ready to give up.
I shout out to a friend, Jamie Johnson, who takes her time to acknowledge another. Her words mean the world to me and act as a reminder that I can do better to do the same. Our light burns brightest when we shine ours on those around us. Thank you, Jamie! Your selfless act made my day.
