A few weeks ago, I was listening to Oprah interview Sister Joan Chittister. Oprah asked (and I’m paraphrasing here) how people could start to make change happen and Sister Chittister responded, “Do something.” I like that. A simple, yet complete response, just “do something.”
So today, on Christmas, I thought I’d release a short blog about doing “something” toward creating a more peaceful and loving world. What if we consider the path to get there is filled with one “something” at a time? All great visionaries and avatars professed the importance of being of service…of doing “something.” Here’s a few:
Be the change, help others, take the first step, smile, love one another, connect with others in need…just do one thing, one “something” good for someone or something else. It doesn’t have to be huge and it doesn’t have to cost you a dime. Notice how you radiate a happier you when you touch the lives of others. Reaching out to be of service to others in struggle reminds us of our humanity, that things have been or could be a lot worse, and that one simple act of kindness can change the course of someone’s life, whether we see that change or not. And it simply feels good…which is selfish, but it’s a good selfish, so carry on with your awesome self!
Thanks for being you. Peace friend ✌😊

p.p.s. Caution: Your “somethings” could lead to the “creating positive change and making your world a happier place” addiction. It’s okay though, there are worse addictions. 😊
