I’m at the end of hearing the negativity that surrounds our day-to-day. How much more Debbie downer info can I cram into my brain? Seriously. Every moment of the day, I feel like it is encompassed by some form of drama or negative attention. I log onto the computer at work, and the homepage pops up full of events going on in the world – the majority of them focusing on who’s mad at who, or who did what to who or what country is going down the tube faster than another country. The TV, the radio, even conversations with other adults all ultimately end up being some sort of doomsday conversation. I can’t take anymore. Do I know there are issues in the world? YES. Do I know that these issues won’t fix themselves? YES. Do I understand that change begins with me and at home? YES. But, I also refuse to believe that our world is full of hate. I believe we, as people, are good. I have to. I refuse to believe anything else because if I believe that hate is winning, then it will win. and I don’t like to lose.
What else do I believe?
I believe that love does win every time.
I believe that laughter truly is the best medicine.
I believe that smiling is contagious.
I believe that kindness matters.
I believe that sweatpants should be business casual.
I believe that acting childish to have fun is appropriate.
I believe that eating dessert first is a-okay.
I believe in treating others the way that I want to be treated.
I believe that the grass is never truly greener.
I believe that hatred is learned and taught, but can be easily corrected.
I believe in second chances.
I believe in long romances.
I believe in eating pizza from a gas station.
I believe in having an entire birthday month.
I believe that movies are never better than the books.
and last, but not least….I believe in each and every one as you are reading this. I truly do. We are good, all of us. We are capable of spreading laughter, joy and love to each other from all different parts of the world.

So, let me ask a favor of you. In the comment section, please tell me where you are from, and tell me one amazing, kind, loving, moving, happy thing going on in your part of the world. No drama, no negativity. Just pure happiness. It can be about anything. About you, your country that you live in, your town that you live in, anything.
I’ll start! Today, I was embraced so loving and pure from my daughter that my heart almost burst from happiness. I’m so lucky to be loved unconditionally. <3 and in my town, we are prepping for Halloween festivities by getting our neighborhood ready for our annual Halloween event. Our house provides hot dogs and an outdoor movie for all the trick or treaters. Halloween time is so magical in our neighborhood. <3
Now, your turn. Share something magical, amazing, loving – anything that makes you happy to be you, or to live where you live.
No matter what part of the country or the world that we live in, we can make each other smile so easily. So, why wouldn’t we? Let’s spread happiness, not hate! 🙂
family, friendship, happiness, love, smile
