Are you upset every time you get on Facebook because of hateful and argumentative comments and posts?
Are you horrified by politicians who don’t seem to care about the American people or even doing their own jobs?
Are you frightened by the rapid onslaught of natural disasters and international conflicts that seem to rapidly be making our world unsafe for our children and grandchildren?
Do you feel as though you’re powerless in the face of all the upheaval currently going on?
Well, you’re absolutely wrong!
Everyone can make a difference in someone else’s life, with something as small as a random act of kindness or a greeting card.
Not only can you change someone else’s life, you can change your own, too. By making someone else’s day a little better, you’re choosing to focus on something you can do to make a difference. That’s empowerment, and it’s a great feeling.
Every time you do some small kindness, the person who received it will see the world as a little bit better place to live in. That shift in perspective can easily prompt them to give someone else a smile or a kind word, making a “pay it forward” ripple that spreads your influence farther.
Imagine if people in every community were actively looking for ways to create these ripples! The more people who participate, the bigger and faster the ripples of positive change can grow.
Do you want to be part of a movement to bring people together and make the world a better place? Come visit my Etsy shop (www.gracenotesbyanita.etsy.com) or use the link below to see my pay-it-forward thank you cards.
Buy some to give out, or simply use them as examples to make your own. And share your “kindness plan” on the Random Acts of Kindness page, too, so others can see what types of positive action they can also pursue to make this happen!
Be the good you want to see in the world!
