The sun sets on another day...
The blue sky spans the horizon, as far as the eye can see nothing but clear skies, and as the sun sets into night, the big dipper points the way to the north star. The sky is crisp, and the it beckons, and tonight I will reach out again in hopes of seeing the northern lights.
I started tonight with a post that was far more invasive. It was built around dreams and desires. I have set it aside for another night. Ooops, and sorry.
We see many videos out there showing how people can be true heroes just by being nice and creating random kindness for someone else. I believe in this theory as a core of who we should be. It is my opinion though that we have to take a little time for ourselves as well. Take the time to do for others, but do for us a little too.
Take a moment, take a breath, and think about those things that make you happy, then think about someone else and see if you can take them along for the ride. It would be silly to assume everyone is a selfless person willing to give everything of themselves until nothing is left, but maybe the path is a little more palatable if you just take someone with you. Smile and say something nice, tell a dumb joke, do an unexpected favor. It is not like you should rip your arm off to help someone, but giving them a hand, not such a bad idea. Think about it.
So as the sun sets on another day wouldn't the world be a better place if we all helped just one other person along. Maybe two? Maybe just maybe if everyone helped two people up each day, the world would be full of people helping each other up, instead of putting each other down. Maybe, just maybe we can make the world a better place by starting with ourselves, and paying a little forward. Even a little would help. Start with you, and ask yourself, are you being the person you need to be, have you helped someone up and not down. Be the best person you can each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, smile bright, and pay it forward if only a little...
