Most of us will not change the world on a grand scale, but we all make a difference in the world around us through our interactions with those we come in contact with on a daily basis. I hope that here you will find inspiration to make that difference one for the better. Kindness is contagious. Let's start an epidemic!

There are a lot of selfish people out there. Sometimes I get fed up and frustrated by the "It's all about me." mentality that seems to be epidemic. It's easy to just get mad and discouraged. But rather than let it turn me into a cynic I've decided to fight back. How do you fight selfishness? With kindness and generosity. We've all heard that we should "Be the Change" we want to see in the world. And when we decide to spread love, instead of our own agenda it catches on. Acts of kindness spread like ripples in a pond. It may sound corny, but it's true. And the effects can be greater than you think, especially if you have children who learn to pattern their behavior after you. That's the reason I am writing this blog. It's one front in the battle against a self-centered society.

Will I go to this much effort to help again? Probably. But I hope this is the last time I will play the fool.
