While preparing for my Moment of Wisdom at my upcoming staff meeting, I feel in love with a new outlook. Instead of thinking about things to be thankful for, as it is Random Acts of Kindness week, I thought it was important to think about the extraordinary things that are happening for others.
Don't believe me?
A small group of people are building something that will soon make the impossible possible
A piece of literature is being written that will eventually change your perspective on life
Young children all over the world are singing and dancing before they even realize there is no music
A friend is helping a friend rise above the thoughts of suicide
There is someone out there who smiles when they think of a specific moment they once shared with you.
Someone is thinking what you're thinking, but hasn't said anything yet either
Somewhere someone is admiring a breathtaking sunrise and somewhere else a surreal sunset
People of various religious backgrounds are in temples, churches, mosques and other places of worship praying, wholeheartedly, for world peace
Hundreds of cute elderly couples are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary
Two best friends are laughing so hard they aren't even making any noise
A future world leader is in grade school at recess (this one gave me chills)
There's a kid studying hard somewhere who aspires to get where you are in life
Someone in your vicinity genuinely wants to be your friend
Someone is taking a shower and singing happily at the top of their lungs
A high school athlete just broke her own personal record
Someone is hugging a friend who desperately needs it
A grandfather is holding his granddaughter's hand and they're both smiling from ear to ear
Someone just places their spare change in the charity collection cup at the grocery store
A small group of friends are sitting around a table sharing funny stories and cheerfully reminiscing about the good old days
Someone out there is missing you and looking forward to your next visit
