Staying on the Sunny Side

Over the past few weeks, I have been asked several times about how to stay positive in the face of all that is going on in the world.  As I have written before, I am not unaware of life's disasters and traumas.  In fact, I am more than too aware of them...aware enough to know that if I dwell on them for too long, my energy gets zapped.

On my Facebook page, Changing the World with Waves of Loving-Kindness, I have tried to encourage people to begin their day connecting their heart to their mind, thereby, mindfully going about whatever it is they do.  When we do this, we start a ripple effect. A smile makes the day of the person standing in line with you.  They smile, which leads to others smiling.  The same is true with acts of kindness.  The simplest act of kindness can change someone's entire world.

We often never see the results of our kindness, which is OK.  We shouldn't be doing kind things to see results, we should be doing them because it is something we want to do, believing that it makes a difference, even when no one else sees that it does.

This week, try doing what an old favorite song says, "Stay on the Sunny Side."  Begin each day holding the vision of something or someone you love in your mind.  Feel that love and let it fill you with warmth.  Each time you hear, see or have something negative come into your day, go back to that place where you envisioned Love.  Together, one act of kindness at a time, we CAN make a difference!
