Sometimes the world is full of sad.
Many recent events/tragedies have been very difficult to understand or believe.
It's easy to be overwhelmed by tragedy and grief and worry.
It's easy to forget that joy and laughter and hope are just as real.
And just as important.
Our news sources have the responsibility to bring us the devastation, but I wish they took their responsibility to bring us the joys as seriously.
Sadness and grief and fear can be contagious.
And sometimes a cycle is created, bringing more and more grief.
But a smile can be contagious too.
So can hope.
So can love.
It's easy to forget that we are capable of changing the world. It's easy to feel small and insignificant.
Every act of kindness,
every dollar donated,
every smile shared,
every person reached,
every hand offered,
every compliment given,
every person heard (really heard),
every heart opened,
Go out and share yours.
Spread the happy.
