I know allot of people just feel like life is pounding them into the pavement and its not hard to understand why. I feel this way sometimes to. As a friend said "Sometimes I just wanna punch life in the face" and I have to agree. There are times that all of us feel that way. But the important thing to remember is that if we don't keep moving forward, then slowly everything else will stop. It takes each and every single one of us to keep our lives, and this world, moving. We are all connected in some, though maybe minute, way. Call it 6 degrees, or 7 billion, of separation. (Sheesh I feel a quote from the Lion King coming on!) I recently watched a video via Facebook and it was quite enlightening. Just one small act of kindness can make the world go round. If each of us do one small kindness it will be seed planted, and as that one small kindness continues to spread and grow then we will eventually have a beautiful rose garden. All we have to do is stop being so blind to the world around us and open up our hearts. There's nothing stopping us but our own petty thoughtlessness and insecurities. Noting ventured nothing gained, and in this case all it is, is a smile.
