There is a place inside all of us that is beautiful. A place where beauty, peace, love, and hope radiate out of us. Sometime it’s hard to find that place, especially when life is just crazy and chaotic and it seems like the world is working against you. It’s there though and if you search hard enough during those chaotic times, you’ll find it. When you find it, let it grow and flourish. Let that beautiful fire spread inside of you and consume you. Let it push away the bad. After you let it warm you, spread that love and beauty around to others.
This world is so full of hate, sadness, and pain. Everyone has a place inside of them that hurts. A place that they struggle with. Some people take that hurt and pain and lash out with it, they spread that pain to others and unfortunately it catches and keeps going. We have the power to change that. We have that love and hope and we need to spread it around. Smile at every stranger you pass, open a door for someone unexpectedly, strike up a conversation while you’re waiting in line with the cashier or the person behind you at the store or the bank.
Why you might ask? Why should I go out of my way to engage with others, when they don’t do it with me? My answer, it’s because people need people. People need interaction, they need a friendly smile or open love. People need to know their not alone. Your smile could change a persons day, that one smile could catch and spread like fire. That is what this world needs if it’s ever going to change, it needs people who want to make other peoples day, even if it’s in a small way. Change starts with you, with us. Change starts with a smile or a warm conversation.
So, spread it and let that love flow out of you, let it catch and spread like a beautiful fire.
