Helping out someone in need
Here is the question we need to ask, would you help out a person in need? In this all about me society, people are too busy, if it’s not about them, they can’t be bothered.
But like I’ve been talking about for the last few months before and after the elections, is that we need to come together as a nation. We need to step up, above and beyond what we normally would do, so that we may start a pass it on mentality through out the world.
We need to post more stuff about people doing good, people doing random acts of kindness, people actually helping their neighbors out instead of all the negative crap we see all the time.
I always say be the change you want to see…I don’t just give that lip action, I actually do things to back it.
I volunteer at church, when there is a fundraiser I am there, both with my money and with my time. If I hear about a person in need, I will buy them groceries, I will call them and pick them up take them shopping, pick up medicine for them, I don’t just speak it, I live it.
I always write that I am a friend to the end, I am your ride or die girl, you can depend on me even if your calling at 3 am, I am there for you.
I am bleesed to have an amazing group of friends who would and have done the same. When I was getting divorced, my church family and friends all showed up to pack and move me, when I bought my new home, and in return I have syepped up and done the same. Friends came by to help out and my dear childhood friend even took off of work for a week to help me with all I needed done. Acts of kindness that have brought me to tears.
My neighbor, who right from the beginning helped me more than I could tell you, then gave me money for my air conditioning after my best friend ran off with the money I lent her.
When he was moving, I was the first one over there to help him pack, move and unpack. That is what you do, that is called being a good person.
I had friends and my boo, fly down to fix my roof, to do all kinds of things in my new home and I would do anything for them in return so recently when my boo fell off a roof, there wasn’t a question in my mind that I was going to book the next plane out to go and help him.
That is who I am, no, I am not blowing smoke up my own ass. I am telling you this because it is something we needn’t think about, it should be natural knee jerk reaction, someone in need…we are there.
I remember my kids asking me why I give or talk to homeless people…my response? There before the grace of God goes I and that is the truth, it could have been me, it could have been you, but God… it’s not.
Everyone on this earth deserves compassion and kindness, it costs nothing to be nice, so than why do so many people chose not to be? Why do you treat the homeless like they are invisible, hell forget the homeless, some people treat others not in their “Class” like they are invisible.
Its not just about racism in this country, its also about “Classism”
Do we not all bleed the same color? Are we not all going to rot in the same size grave one day?
Are we are not all the same despite all of our differences, it doesn’t matter if your black, white, Muslim, Buddhist, if your gay or straight or transgender, we are all the same, so why can’t we just be kinder to one
Why can’t you take that minute out of your day to help, to say a kind word, to do something good? It is really all about you?
We need to realize we can change the world, we can stand together and say we had enough! We are going to only watch TV that means something, we are only going to post positive things, we are going to respond in kindness even if that person is an asshole, we are going to take the time to help our neighbors out, do something good for our neighborhood, change the world one good deed at a time.
If you want change be the change, it only takes one person to start it, believe that, be that one person, start today.
