The world can appear to be a dark place sometimes. We hear and see lots of things that feel sad right now. People are hurting everywhere, it seems.
What can we do? When we are thinking that the world is spinning out of control – what can we do?
We can add our light. We can add our love.
Think about the last time you heard someone at a store who was berating a store employee for not doing her job “correctly.” Most of us encounter a situation like that at some point. Think about how it would feel to listen to that for a moment.
Now think about how it would feel to listen to someone telling a store employee that she was doing a wonderful job. Think about saying it yourself. Think about how it would feel to hear it out loud.
That is how we can add love into the world. By being kind, compassionate – by sharing smiles and loving words.
