Giving Back and Giving Hope

Only one life to live and one lifetime to give.
Sometimes life doesn't go the way we want. We don't get the golden egg, or the accolades from our boss or co workers. It just is what it is. So what do you do? Do you pout about it, walk around pissed off at the world or whine how unfair life is? People who spend their time complaining about everyone else and about how unfair life is should be kicked in the butt. You know a good old fashioned swoosh.
For those who go to bed hungry

There are so many people out there whose lives truly are hard, and do suck in a very big way. What is amazing is you do not hear them complain.With grace and humor most of them keep going smiling and paying it forward. More often than not they are the ones keeping everyone else going. Yet we never take the time to say thank you to them. Thank you for letting your positive outlook shine on others and lighten their mood. So here is the challenge Christmas is right around the corner. Do something nice for one of those special people, do something nice for someone who is in need. No, need doesn't just mean the homeless guy down the road. Its the single mom who cant afford Christmas, its the family who lost everything in the hurricane, it can be someone old or young it does not matter just give of yourself in some small way.  

For the elderly who have no one.
Do something to lighten their day and their load in life. Even if its volunteering to baby sit or a free set of movie tickets. Do something nice for someone else give back and pay it forward.

Not because you have to but because you can. It isn’t hard, and won't take all day. You may be surprised by the difference you make in their life. It can be a friend or a stranger, just someone who actually needs a helping hand or a word of encouragement.

Half the problem we face in this country is it takes tragedy to bring out the good in us, so do some good! Just because you can, make one small gift of yourself and give someone back some of the hope that they may be lacking right now. It doesn't take much to refill that well of hope, and each of us has it.Even if we don’t like to admit it.

For the single moms who go it alone

Do unto others as you 
would have them do unto you.

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
