Extraordinary Things Are Happening RIGHT NOW

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?

Right now...
  • 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

Believe me now?

I love editing photos. It’s really becoming an addiction.

That’s all.
