With Thanksgiving right around the corner, people are starting to show their appreciation for all the things they have been blessed with; things that we take for granted and should be thankful for everyday. As we go on with our daily lives, we don't realize just how how fortunate we are to be able to do things that seem unimportant to us, like taking a car ride or even going to school.
We forget about those who don't have the privilege to go to school. We forget about those who don't have anything to eat, while we are being picky with our food and at times wasting it. We forget about those who don't have the comfort to sleep on a bed at night, or don't have a roof over their heads to protect them.
This Thanksgiving, we should make it our goal to reach out to those who are in need, whether it be a compliment to a stranger who passes you by or donating to charities or organizations that help others. Starting today, we should take every opportunity we have to be a source of joy to others. As I try to do this myself, I would like to encourage you all to do some random acts of kindness that just may make someone's day a thousand times better. By helping others, we will be able to share with them the joys of life and hopefully inspire others to do the same. Through this, we will be able to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time.
If you do choose to accept this challenge, post a picture or a message on any social media using the hashtag #kindnessxox. Through this, we will be able to share the many ideas we have all come up with to try and make a change in people's lives.
Don't be afraid to go out and try to bring joy into the world. Until the next post. Never forget to be you.
