Now a days it's hard enough to keep yourself encouraged. There is so much that we can be down about at this point in the world. The economy is down, unemployment is at a high, (again) we are still losing our children and families to senseless violence. Its hard out here for everyone. We also have so much to be thankful for. The fact that your alive and reading this is a blessing in itself. If you can take a breath on your own, walk around on two legs with two arms-even if you ain't got all ten fingers and toes- its still a blessing. Knowing that it can be hard to keep yourself motivated, it can be harder to motivate someone else.
I know a few people who are just down. Not necessarily in life as far as finances and such, but their spirits about one thing or another, are just down. So for this holiday season instead of thinking about what you can spend on a gift, why not give something that doesn't cost anything. Smile. Give someone a hug. Tell them its gonna be OK.
I know sometimes it can be a little inconvenient to go out of your way for someone else, but these little gestures can go a long way in lifting someones spirit. Not to mention, you would be surprised at how making someone else smile, can make you feel better as well. Be the change you want to see in the world. You never know what someone else is going through and how much little things can help.
So with that being said, SMILE its a beautiful thing.
