As I sit here having my coffee, looking out into my back yard. I see the birds taking their bath in the birdbath and a squirrel scampering around in my trees looking for the berries. It all seems so peaceful.
Then you turn on the news and all the anger around the world, that peaceful feeling disappears as it over crowds my mind. With road rage, teenage killers, murder and hatefulness from those that can’t find peace within themselves.
My question to those that have blacken hearts, is why can’t they learn to forgive and seek peace within? Is that so much to ask? Is there anyway to give them the opportunity to find the peace within to make them a better and peaceful person?
I don’t have the answer and I wish I did. I wish with all my heart there was a pill to change these people’s thoughts and take the darkness away from their hearts and minds. We all make choices everyday. Some good, some bad. The bad ones we learn from and learn to make things better.
We all have a chance to make one person smile and brighten some ones day. All it takes is a smile and to say maybe hello. This little gesture can chance a persons outlook for the entire day.
So do a couple of things when you go out today.
- Smile at the person you meet on the street.
- Always say please and thank you to those that serve you.
If you to these two things, you will be surprised at the response from others and the smile you will put on their face. It will also make you smile inside for the feeling is contiguous.
May God Bless.
