Be random. Be kind. Be good. Be happy.
If you choose to wield your brush on the world, paint the world with understanding. If you choose to wield your pen on the world, write words of encouragement. If you choose to wield your needle on the world, sew together the thread of unity. One person can effect a change far larger than we know, so make it a positive one.
As we find ourselves hours from Christmas Day, we must remember that love, kindness, and acceptance all some of the greatest gifts that can be given but not just during Christmas but all year ’round. So this season and everyday give a little more love and kindness and pass around more understanding. Merry Christmas to all and to all a great evening!
I post this poem as a reminder of the need to hold life and each day as a precious gift. Happy Holidays to all!
Link by link we forge the chain
Of our yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows
Sitting thinking wishing praying
For a different outcome from where we are
Waiting for an answer and a hero
To rescue us from our latest series of scrapes
Kindness, a simple word to some
But a hard concept to others who have never
Known such a thing to exist
For they have only seen the pain and sorrow
Of a world given to apathy
Bond by bond we control the course of futures
Unseen and emotional tides
Of desires for love and unconditional acceptance
And in these times we have a responsibility
To gain perspective and open our minds to
Feel more than ourselves and to feel thankfulness
For what we have and the things that are still
Yet unseen but not impossible
For we are strength, we are love, we are hope
When being surrounded by kindness and positivity, the best way to keep it going in your life is to pay it forward to others.
