My Thoughts To Be A Solution In A World Of Despair

May 13, 2017

 

 

It Doesn't Need To Be Stated That We Are Living In A Messed Up World, A World That Cannot Be Comprehended By Many of Us.  There Is A Marriage Between Fiction and Reality In Our Society, And With That A Distancing Between Love And Connection With One Another. 

 

Discussing, Arguing About, And Debating Who Is Right And Who Is Wrong Does Not Interest Me, In Fact It Frankly Sickens Me.  Instead of This I Propose That We Drive Out The Darkness of This World With The Light of Goodness, With The Radiance of Growing Closer With One Another, And With The Effervescent Glow That Accompanies DOING GOOD When DOING GOOD Seems All But Lost! 

 

The World Is Rife With Critical Chatter, Full of “What Needs To Be Done”, Yet Exceedingly Deficient of Action…Let’s Be The Ones That TAKE THAT ACTION!  … ONE TRUTH THAT I HAVE FOUND TO BE EXCEEDINGLY TRUE IS THAT VIRTUALLY NOBODY CONTINUES TO GARNER ANIMOSITY TOWARD ANYBODY THAT SHOW’S A GENUINE SENSE OF CARE FOR, RATHER THEY GROW TO TRUST…BUT TRUST IS EARNED BY DOING, NOT BY TALKING!  

 

 

Here Is My Short List of Actual Things You Can Do To Show Goodness And Unite A World That Has Gone Astray: 

 

Listen (Without Rebuttal) To Others: Yes, It's That Simple…Actually LISTEN To What Others Are Saying…Put Your Thoughts, Your Opinions, And Your Biases Aside For A Little Bit And JUST LISTEN! Have No Agenda, Even If What You Are Being Told Irks You In Some Way…Just Let Them Get Their Thoughts Out (Whether They Are Boasting About Something Positive or Venting Struggles And Their View of Them).  You Will Have Plenty of Time To Digest It All Later, In Which You Will Have Ample Time To Generate A Much More Legitimate Outlook of It All. 

 

Go Out Of Your Way To Say Hi: This Is The Most Simple... It Requires Practically NONE Of Your Time.  When You See People Don't Act So Cold And Separated…Just MAKE Actual Contact With Other Humans…I Promise It’s Not Scary.  When We Remain Closed Off, The World Too Remains Closed Off.  If You Struggle With Anxiety About Talking To Strangers…AT LEAST SMILE WHEN YOU LOOK STRANGERS IN THE FACE…Even That Will Soften The Bars of Disparity.

 

Volunteer: The World Is Not In A Shortage of Need, Your Immediate And Distant Surroundings Are Suffering…That Suffering Breeds And Raises A Further Distancing Among Us (This Applies To All Demographics). Plain And Simple Offer Anything That You Can To Those Around You And Watch The Barriers of Disparity Crumble Fast.  Continue To Argue/Bicker About The World Watch Another Layer of Mortar Be Applied To The Wall of Partition.  

 

Create Memories: Giving Money Is Great But That Sentiment (Although Appreciative) Fades Fast! It’s Far Better Suited To Construct Memories Through Your Actions…That Will Display And Cement A Lasting Impression of Change.  Make Every Experience That YOU Are A Part of … AN UNFORGETTABLE ONE!  Be That Person That Makes Everyone You Come In Contact With Feel Excited, Happy, And Empowered…And Not Just For The Time You Are With Them, But Forever! Because Every Single Person Wants And DESERVES To Feel Excited, Happy, and Empowered About Life! Are You Willing To Be That Person That Sparks A Newfound Sense of Hope In Others? … Because If Not YOU…Then What Hope Do We Have?

 

Offer Your Services: This Can Go With Volunteerism, But I Suppose It Can Just Be A Part of Your Profession As Well. No Matter What, Just Offer Your Services (That Which You Are Gifted In) To Those That Need It.  1) The Reality Is That YOU (YES YOU) Are Very Good At Certain Things…OWN IT! 2) There Are Plenty of People Out There That Are Not Good At Those Things But Could Desperately Use That Assistance To Better Their Lives.  By Providing Your Unique Skill Set You Are Both SHOWING CARE And IMPROVING THE LIVES OF OTHERS…Win Win!

 

Offer Your TIME: This Is The Greatest Form of Sacrifice In My Opinion, Yet The MOST Significant. We May Not All Have Money To Give, We May Not All Have Specific Skills That Can Best Assist Others In An Area of Need For Them…But We Can All Give Our Time, And In The End TIME Is Actually Our Most Precious Commodity.  Yet Many Of Us (MYSELF INCLUDED) Are Far More Willing To Give Up Other Things Than Our Time…But When You Are Willing To Sacrifice Your Own Valuable Time For Others A Wonderful Notion of Graciousness Is Being Displayed That Is Incomparable…No, It Is Not Easy, But Then Again That’s What The Root of ‘Sacrifice’ Is…Difficult-ness. 

 

Physically Go Visit With Others: Yes, This Is Important And Goes With Offering Time…But Make Sure To Actually Be Physically Present In These Things.  Assisting In Specific Efforts Is Great, And Many Plan To Do So…But Very Few Actually SHOW UP When It’s Needed…Just Show Up, With Your Own Body.  

 

BE PERSISTENT: This Is The Cardinal Rule That Can Be Applied To Anything You Wish To Change, YOU CANNOT STOP! Showing That You Care Once Is Great And No Doubt Can Make A Difference…But To Show, Create, And MAKE REAL CHANGE We Must Show That We Care ENDLESSLY! When We Make Being Good A Habit, Being Good Becomes The Norm, And GOODNESS ALL AROUND WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW! 

 

Be YOU (Don’t Sacrifice Genuineness):  This Is PARAMOUNT…Yes, You May Have To Do Things That Make You Uncomfortable. You May Be Put In Situations That You Would Not Normally Do, And Perhaps Test Your Own Thoughts (Or Heaven Forbid That You May Not Agree With).  This Is ALL WONDERFUL!  I Am Not Telling You To Go Directly Against Your Strong Personal Beliefs And If Your True Morals Are In Question Do Not Waver.  In The End You Must BE YOU And Stand For What You Believe In.... The Key Is Doing This In A Comforting And Welcoming Way.  It Will Show If You Are Just Faking It, Trust Me! Instead It Can Be Understood That You And Those Around You May Have Differences (And That’s Ok), But More-so It Will Prove That Even With Differences We Can Unite As One…Even As Our Unique Selves. 

 

Smile Often: How Easy Is This?… Very! How Profoundly Beneficial Is This?…INFINITELY  

 

 

And That Is My ‘Short List’ of Ways That You Can ACTUALLY SHOW CHANGE.  This Week (And Really Forever) I Ask You, I Encourage You, And I Implore You To Not Worry About What Has/Hasn’t Happened In The Recent/Distant Past, To Not Debate Whether or Not This or That Policy Should Be Implemented Into Law, To Not Argue or Post About Whose Lives Matter, Don't Discuss Why This Candidate Is Going To Ruin The Country, Do Not Complain Of Why Your Boss Is An Idiot, Criticize Why Certain People Behave In The Manner That They Do And How They Should Behave….NONE OF THAT…In Fact Just Stop Talking Altogether… AND JUST GO DO!!! … I Would Continue To Rant About This, But I Can't, Because I Have To Go MAKE Change In The World…I Will See You Out There Doing The Same Thing This Week!

 

 

Smile, Laugh, Tell Someone You Love Them, and Keep Living The Gooder Life!
