Rantings, ravings and musings.
First the killings of innocent children, then the NRA coming out for security people with guns at schools, then the fiscal cliff and finally all those stories about coulda, woulda, shoulda for the last day of the world. I can't live in regret or sorrow or sadness without doing something. I read others stories and it is all about what they wish they could do in their lifetime. i say stop writing about it and tackle one thing a day. If you don't return calls do, if you don't return emails do, if you normally don't give, do and if you don't extend a reach to others, do. Stop focusing on all that you wish you could do and start focusing on what you do or can do. Money makes it easier to give but there are so many opportunities that cost nothing. Clean your closet and give to a charity. Clean out your pantry and kitchen and donate. Write a letter to a friend you have been missing. Visit someone in a nursing home. Take you talent to a hospital. Sing and dance you way through life where it is most needed. I am sorry but it is the time to stop writing and start doing. Invite someone to your home for an afternoon of tea or wine. Join a charity, work for good, sign petitions but don't wallow in all the things you wish you had done. Get it done. Put down those pens and papers and stories and make someone else your story. There should be no regrets if you truly think of others. Wake up each day with a smile and a wish to make someone else's life easier. Concentrate on goodness, concentrate on helping others and most of all spread love. It doesn't always work as some are mired in their sorrow, or selfishness or ability not to step out of their misery but for those who can or want to or will, you can offer a hand, a handout or a loving smile. Please extend your reach today. You would be surprised how far it can go.
