Be the light in the darkness

Life can be a struggle. I feel angry when there is a lack of compassion to anything and anyone alive. My mind can't wrap around it, and all I want to do is ask why? But asking why is like asking a three year old why they did something naughty. The answer makes no sense because usually they don't even know.

All I can say is complaining isn't helping. Nearly all of social media is complaining.  The news makes matters worse instead of better to increase their ratings.  Higher ratings equals more money.  We need to take a different approach if we really seek change.

Stop the complaining and do something-anything-nice for a person, an animal, a community.  It doesn't matter what it is, it only matters if you do it. Saying you'll do it next week, next month or next year doesn't count.  Do it today and everyday.  We live for now and we die later.

The simplest acts are the ones that matter the most. Smile more, compliment more, be present, and be kind. Stop looking for the bad in everything and only talk about the good.  Let's bring back the good day by day and step by step.

Yes, bad things happen every minute.  But we can't help something that's happening that we have no control over. We can't help all the starving people, but we can feed a few.  We can't end all child abuse, but we can be nice to children and show kindness. We can't care for every homeless animal but we can donate things to shelters. We can't stop every baby dying in abortion, but we can help women who are pregnant that need support and their babies supplies.  We can't help those who choose to kill with guns, knives or any other violent ways, but we can stop sensationalism violence on Facebook.  No need to draw more attention to hate unless you're being proactive to help the victims. 

Life is short.  Some of us die before being born and some are lucky enough to live past 100. Live wisely and love abundantly. Make each second count. You're the only one in control of your actions. We can and will change the world if that's what we choose.
