day 29- in this past month, what have you learned

the most valuable thing i've learned this month:

to just simply be kind.

that's all there is to it.

the other day, this song came on the radio.
it was one of my favorite songs.
one of those "no matter when you hear it, it makes you happy songs."
i thought, hey, i should post a blog about this song!

then a few days passed.
i was driving home from work the other night, and the song came on again.
"hey, i should post about this on my blog!" i thought again.
and then, i kid you not, the song came on AGAIN right after.
twice in a row.
granted, it's a high school station that has many flaws and errors,
but i took it as a sign.

so here it is.
my happy song.

this song is, in short, is about how the world is right now.
we're simply waiting on it to change.
but as you're all aware, the world isn't all going to change all on its own.

if you're sitting there waiting on the world to change,
then you have absolutely no right to complain about how miserable it is.
now, if you're doing something about it.
if you're doing everything within your control to make this place better,
then you're too darn busy to even have time to complain.

it really takes no effort at all to make this world better.
just be kind.

there are people who are happy.
and there are people who are sad.
and don't mistake temporary unhappiness for sadness
because in your heart, you know you're genuinely happy.
but if you are one of the fortunate few who truly is happy,
why not share the wealth?
and instead of letting those sad people make you temporarily unhappy,
you make those sad people permanently happy.

let's not wait on the world to change.
put a smile on your face,
and make the world a better place. :)
