This morning, I'm grateful for all of my friends and blessings. I can't stop reflecting on all those affected by the storms of the past weekend. Life can change so quickly in just a matter of seconds. We all need to aware of that and mindful of the fact that it could happen to any of us.
I've been so touched by all the out pouring of support for those victims. It reallys renews my faith in humanity.
We're all so busy in our daily lives that it often takes a tragedy like this to make us stop what we're doing and focus on others. I firmly believe that we are meant to be more mindful of the needs of others, rather than our own. I see people on a daily basis stuggling with health issues who need help with resources. Many of them are grateful for the help that is available to them. But, there are many who don't seem to be appreciative. It saddens me to see such selfishness. But, the fact of the matter is that is what has become of our society.
I think that the world would be a better place if we were all more sensitive to the needs of others. The only way I know to do that is to lead by example. Recently, a friend of mine challenged herself to practice a random act of kindness every day for 7 days. I think that is an excellent idea and I think that I will challenge myself to do the same.
