Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May a little luck shine upon you to brighten your day.
You just never, ever know what someone else may be facing. Everyone is facing something. Give a smile, positive perspective on things, a hug, or just an ear. Or do you have any suggestions?
We posted this on our Facebook page today. It is being passed on and on. In fact, this is the most successful post we have ever had! This is another data point proving people want to do good for others. It is heart-warming to me. Hugs, oxox
Problems are easy to identify. They are easy to complain about. But as I say at work, “Please don’t bring me problems. Bring me solutions.”
Oh, I have problems. Don’t we all? Most of my problems, I remind myself, are luxury problems. The problems that a lot of people would be happy to have. So I have to look at the bright side. At least my problems are not life and death; many people are fighting for their lives right now. But like this says, help someone in need, and my own problems seem mild in comparison.
Someone once said to me, “If we all had the opportunity to throw our problems out on a table and to pick up someone else’s, most of us would pick up our own.”
One of my biggest hopes for the impact that ThinkGood can have on the world is to get people to be more accepting of other people. Celebrate our differences. That’s why I love this quote.
