I'm On the Look-Out!
Thursday, November 28, 2019
I don’t fully understand the angry, draining emotions around me, but I know that I need to be strong and resist them. I need to bring joy to my family, to my students, and to my mother. I need to first receive that joy before I can give it away. Here is my plan (actually, I copied this from my friend Paul Boynton) I’m going be on the lookout for hopeful and optimistic people who are actually doing something to make the world a kinder, safer place and I’m going to try and be more like them. I’m going to focus less on all that’s wrong with the world and more on small things I can do to make some things right. I’m going to smile more at strangers, leave bigger tips when I buy a cup of coffee and speak up more often when I see people being kind or friendly or helpful. I’m going to stay in closer touch with family and friends who I love and who mean the world to me. And I am going to watch less TV and listen to more Broadway show tunes.
