Spread love. Spread Kindness.

With all the negativity that the media has revealed, it has definitely become very difficult to be a positive person. Whenever the television gets turned on there is something negative, depressing and outrageous. Recently it has started to become quite an annoyance and I realized that with all of the negativity, a drop of positivity would be encouraging.

It always feels amazing when I do something for the community or a friend or even a complete
stranger. Seeing the relief on the faces of those that I've helped is priceless. I've learned that helping others in turn helps you. How? Well when you help someone accomplish something they weren't able to do or achieve on their own, they will be grateful and remember what you did. So when you are in a situation where you are stuck and need help, they will be there to help you. For instance, my husband and I were out doing errands and when we got in our car to head back home, the car wouldn't start. We realized that we left the lights on and the battery died! We needed help. There were a few people that drove and walked past us and offered no help. After a while someone came by and offered some assistance. We were embarrassed but so grateful for someone taking the time out of their day to help us. It has become a chain reaction where when we see someone stuck and they need help, we don't think twice. We just jump in and help in any way possible because we know how it is to need help and to receive it.

Let's spread some love around because love covers a multitude of sins. Let's spread positive vibes and treat others the way you want to be treated. Speak an encouraging word to someone that has been down and out. Help someone financially that you know has been struggling to pay things off. Forgive someone that has hurt you in the past and apologize to those that you've mistreated. Start fresh with a clean slate and don't only do this for the other person, but do this for yourself as well. Take time today to brighten someone's day! Spread positivity and be kind to someone even if they are rude to you, because even a simple smile can turn someone's day around.
