When In Doubt. Just Be Kind.

4:59 PM

Children, mothers, and fathers lose their families in brutal ways around this world while we sit at home feeling helpless, like there's nothing we can do to stop these crazy things from happening. One can have it all, and in one second, it all vanishes. Gone. And all they are left with are memories and heartache. 

I've always stayed away from the news. Never wanted to know too much, as they say ''ignorance is bliss'' but I've come to realise  that when it comes to other human beings getting hurt, ignorance is anything but bliss. 

Ignoring terrible events happening in this world is not bliss. Because we CAN help make it better, and difference CAN be made if we all stand together and help this world become a better place.

With all these things happening, we still shouldn't lose our faith in humanity, there's still love, care, kindness, generosity, faith, and positivity in this world. Each one of us has so much kindness in their hearts. We just need to pour it out to the world. Let the love beat all the hate. 

Our lives are so precious and short. We're not going to live forever on this earth. So live life to the fullest everyday, show the people around you how much you care. Spend more time with the people you love the most. Fill your days with valuable and meaningful moments. Be kind to people. Help the less fortunate. Be the best person you can be on this earth and add a little bit of happiness wherever you go. 
Do as much as you can to contribute into making this world a better place.

Don't waste time waiting for tomorrow, the weekend, next month or year to do what you want to do. Start NOW, live your life now, make a difference now, life is happening right now as you are reading this post. If you have an amazing idea, go for it. Stop waiting. 

There's a quote that I read in Paul Arden's book ''It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be'' and it says : ''So many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you've got, and fix it as you go'' 

Don't let the materialistic things in this world distract you from the beauty of life, the real things that really matter. Be kind to yourself and the people around you. 

There is another quote that I love so very much and it says : ''To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded” 
How beautiful it is to know that you've saved someone in any way possible? To say a kind word that will brighten someone's day, or comfort someone's heart. 

Be kind, inspire people, make them smile, spread the love everywhere, sprinkle this world with happiness!

Take your time and enjoy every moment of your life. Breathe it all in, feel it, love it.
''Live the actual moment. Only this actual moment is life.''

I watched a heart breaking video of a Palestinian father who just found out that his son has gone to heaven. And in the video, the father kisses his son and congratulates him for going up to heaven, crying out and saying ''my beautiful son, you're going to see your grandfather in heaven, he is going to look after you.''

It tore my hearts to pieces, seeing broken people crying and thanking God for everything anyway. With all the tragedy they are going through, losing their whole families, they are still thankful..

If you feel like you have been guilty of taking your life for granted and not being appreciative enough, then start now, look around you now and count your beautiful blessings. You are more blessed than you can imagine.

You are breathing.
You are alive.
You are healthy.
You are here.
You can make a difference.

Have a wonderful day/night wherever you are and keep the people who have passed, and the ones that are hurting around the world in your prayers.
