Kindness, love, brotherhood, beauty– all of them look closer to fiction than fact as I receive dark news from all over the world. Or maybe it is my dark frame of mind as I start on a new novel.
I don’t know that I can change the world. But each of us can make a change in our own worlds, and bring about a change, however tiny, for someone else.
I try to be a positive presence in life, and online, for writer friends and readers– and today, I’d just like to reach out to everyone who visits: talk to me about your triumphs, the good things that happened to you, the kindness you gave and received, things that made you smile and laugh. And if it is a sadness you want to share (if you’re comfortable with doing so here or via messages or email) and just want someone to listen, I’m here.
I have a bad back today, but I also had a few good meals, read a book, got a bit of work done, got a few smiles and hugs. That’s my happiness for the day sorted, love given and received. Sending out love, light and hugs to all my bloggy friends on here.
What bit of love did you give or receive today? Want to tell us your good news? Tell us what you’re upset about? Anyone need a hug?
If you need more positives and smiles in your lives, I co-host the monthly We Are the World Blogfest: I’d like to invite you to join. Post a snippet of positive news that shows our essential, beautiful humanity on the last Friday of each month– and read heartwarming snippets from others.
This monthly event has brought smiles on the faces of a lot of participants and their audiences, and somewhat restored their faith in humanity. Here is a sampler. Click here to know more. Sign up here and add your bit of cheer to the world on the next installment of August 25th!
