I don’t know about you guys but I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooo over all the hate on the internet. For example, just yesterday a fight broke out on Facebook because (and this is a true story) someone had put jam and yoghurt on a plain rice cake for a low calorie treat and someone else went bananas because it didn’t follow ‘the plan’. What the actual…..
You know Australia is on fire, koalas are dying by the second and missiles are being launched but obviously the real problem here is strawberry jam and Greek yoghurt… Aren’t we so silly for getting our priorities in the wrong order!
Anyway a few years ago a friend and I made a pact that we were going to be more selfish because that’s how the human race works. And for the most part we have stuck to it (I don’t mean excessively so.. I like to think I’m kinda decent). But we’ve been on our own agenda on occasion. And for the most part, it’s backfired (for me anyway).
However, I’ve had a change of heart. I miss kindness. Watching the people of Australia look after each other and their wildlife has been life changing for me. Kindness does exist and we should utilise it more.
I’ve made a little pact with myself that I’ll do something kind each day. It might be something as small as letting a car out at a junction but I will try and do something for someone.
It’s not about making myself feel better, it’s purely because it’s nice to be nice. It’s also nice to make someone’s day a tiny bit easier.
Why breed negativity when we can breed positivity?
NB: Now just for a bit of background…. I wasn’t always Miss Positive. I was often a realist/pessimist and had quite a negative outlook on life. That was until I found myself unemployed and losing my house deposit savings FAST. The only things I had left were Tim, a great family and the ability to work on my mindset. I’ve never looked back since.
