Be Kind- Do Good

There is so much tragedy in the world- it seems that every day there is some new horrible thing that has happened.  Some people don't read or watch the news because they just can't take all of the traumatic events.  It's just too depressing.

Whether you partake of the news or not, there are ways you can improve the situation.  It starts with being kind and compassionate.  You never know when tragedy will come your way and you will need the kindness, patience, and compassion of others- so exercise those same traits freely while your seas are smooth.

My family recently experienced a loss.  It wasn't as severe as tragedies some have suffered, so I don't want to spend too much time on it; but it just shows that trauma and loss comes everyone's way eventually.  We recently lost a family treasure.  My mom's aunt & uncle had built a cabin in Feather Falls, California, during the gold mining era.  It was recently destroyed by fire.  As my brother said- all that is left is some tin & nails.

I just wanted to share a few pictures & my thoughts on current events.  If you have suffered a traumatic event recently, my heart goes out to you.  Hang in there- it will get better.  If your life is going good right now- reach out to help someone else.  Even if it is a small act of kindness- just do it.  Open a door for someone.  Cut that person who cut in line in front of you some slack- Remember that it is not that big of a deal in the larger scheme of things.

Life is an adventure.  Live yours to the full- and help someone else to have a better one.
