Wednesday Wisdom: Good People

I know that I have vaguely talked this topic into the ground, and please forgive me for that.  Writing is how I cope and how I heal from things that aren't ideal.

Since I graduated college, I have been such a happy person.  My goal has become to look for the silver lining in everything that I do.  Things right now are uncomfortable and while I thought that I had become desensitized to domestic violence, last Wednesday jerked a knot in my chain, so to speak.  But I will continue to look for the silver lining.

There are so many good people in this world.  So so many.  And I like to think that y'all are included in that number.

Sometimes I lose faith in humanity when I learn of things like 14-year old Sarah who tweeted threats toward American Airlines claiming to be a member of Al Qaeda, and that she was going to "do something big on June 1."  [article]  And then I remember that there are also kids like Jack Andraka, aka the 15 year old boy who invented an early test for pancreatic cancer, and I feel like maybe our world will be okay after all...Because we can't have the Jack's without having a handful Sarah's.

And in the words of Kid President, who might just be the wisest person on this planet, “If everybody’s good, then it gives the world a reason to dance… so get to it!”



Happy Humpday!  I hope you are encountering more of the good people in this world than the not so good today :)  Come back tomorrow for an update on my 24 before 24 list!

  1. There will always be negative people, and unfortunately it's hard to fix that, at least I've found. Instead, I just surround myself with good people and positivity! Since making that change, I have truly become a better person!
