The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was again cloudy, but no meatballs were in the air. I was hoping for some serious pasta, didn’t happen.
For context on some of what I will be talking about you can click here.
I was scrolling through the Internet yesterday and came across a number of wonderful ideas and testaments to what people had done for other people. This ranged from cutting lawns to attending events to being at the front line of everything going on. As I looked at these many of them were very positive and some of them, we’re inspiring because of the sheer tenacity of the individuals who were helping others. Fast forward a few hours and I was watching a television show about heroes that focused on people like firefighters that often get overlooked. I sat and thought for a few minutes about all of the people who do so much and get overlooked very consistently.
As I did I realized most people do things for others without the expectation of any notoriety or any number of additional clicks on social media. It was then I thought about years ago and when both my dad and I had similar ideas at a similar time. You know maybe it would be better if nobody had to point out that they had done something good. Maybe it would be better if donations were all anonymous. Maybe it would be better if when we did something nice we simply did it because we wanted to help someone.
In an idea a long time ago it was suggested did a group of people could help others and their primary focus would be to help and stay unknown. I’m not saying that’s the best solution but maybe it’s a solution that would help more people. Maybe it’s the solution that would allow others the freedom to not be in competition but instead to make the world a better place.
Now I am sure that there are plenty of things that are very nice to have out in the open. I’m sure it’s also nice to be thanked sometimes and when I have helped some people they have been very appreciative but in the end when people need you isn’t it best to just be there? I’m not pretending to have all the answers here and I’m sure that you can interject your opinion, I’m just pointing out that the world would be a better place if we helped those people that needed help.
So as the sun sets on another day, if you need help I hope you get it People sometimes need a little more. If you can give help I hope you do it freely and without expectation. Along the way I hope you do amazing things, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep doing good…
