Monday Meanderings

Let's start a movement to improve the world in which we live!
As humans we are apt to complain about  things we do not like or with which we disagree.
Complaining gets us nowhere.
Instead, let's work together to spread love.
Begin by doing something kind for a stranger; hold a door open, help an elderly person up the stairs, compliment the grumpy person behind the counter on her hair or her eyes, do something positive.
These are simple things that can transform a person's day.
However, there are more pressing matters at hand that require sacrifice and commitment like cooking dinners for the homeless, tutoring children in after school programs, standing beside the unwanted or misunderstood in an effort to shield them from hate.
It is time we stop grumbling about our politicians and start writing letters to congressmen and women demanding they make decisions that represent the people and benefit our nation.
Give thanks that brave men and women have sacrificed their lives for us to vote, to speak freely, and for the opportunity to enact change.
But we have to start somewhere.
Show a small act of kindness today and task yourself to do a bit more tomorrow and then the next day. Challenge your friends to do the same.
We must stand together to battle hate!
We have much to be thankful for in this country. Perhaps we should be grateful for the opportunity to help others and improve the world in which we live.
Anyone up for the challenge?

Blessings from The Parlor!
