Pep Talk

30 Jan

Kid President. What an adorable young man! I met him for the first time (via this video) just yesterday and he has already rocked my world.

“It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”

We could all use a little pep talk. We are so quick to fall into our routines and we walk around with tunnel vision, completely ignoring those we pass by each day. We simply co-exist in a shared space, never interacting.

I am guilty too.

But that is about to change.

There have been some phenomenally inspiring movements recently. It’s unfortunate that these things tend to rise up out of tragedy, but it also renews our hope in humanity, and that is always a good thing.

Pay it Forward and 26 Acts are just two examples. Secret Agent L has been inspiring missions for quite some time. And now I’ve joined in.

Find something you can do as a random act of kindness for someone else. It could be simply an encouraging card left on a bathroom mirror, a few bucks in an envelope on a park bench with a note, paying for the person behind you in the drive-thru. Whatever you can do … go and do it. Not for recognition or thanks. In fact, anonymously and incognito is always better. You will feel good and you will brighten someone’s day.

Because, you see, it does matter. We all matter. And we could all use a little pep talk.

    That is so true. So many times people have done good things especially for Grandpa and it really makes his day! It’s sad when people with disabilities are looked at and then ignored. They need a nice heloo even more than the person who is out and about every day. God bless you!
