What a Video!

For the last couple days, I've seen Facebook friends repost a video.  Time and time again they preface it with things like, 'wow...this really makes you think.' And...'grab a tissue, and learn.'  I never found myself with enough time to spend the three minutes watching it...until this morning.  I clicked the link and hit 'play.'  Boy am I glad I did.  It was a story about paying it forward.  A video about being kind.  A lesson that 'Giving is the best communication.'  At a time when lots of conversations, both online and in the hallways are about pointing the finger and rumors, it was so refreshing to let this video sink in and seep into my soul.  It reminded me that human kindness IS attainable and still exists.  It's a theme I seem to constantly come back to...and it's as simple as this.  Be nice!!!  You never know what the lady at the grocery store check-out line went through yesterday and you have no idea that the man who was less than considerate to you on the beltline was just told some horrible news.  It's best to remember that MOST actions that conclude in you not being treated the best are results of something having nothing to do with you.  And you don't have control over their actions...only yours.  So smile.  Be happy...with hopes that people catch on.  One of my favorite people to ever live is Abraham Lincoln.  For many reasons...but the main one is this quote.  'People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.'  It's a choice.  You choose every day when you get up if you're going to hit the ground running or let the ground run all over you.  And tomorrow morning, before you make that choice...make sure you watch this first.
