If You See Something, Say Something

6 01 2016

We are all too aware that the world is a very dangerous place and that we must be vigilant in our attention to any little thing that might be a sign of something bad about to happen. We are exhorted by placards, public service announcements, and the 24/7 news media to report suspicious activities, things, or people . . .

If You See Something, Say Something.


There’s no question that we should look out for our safety, but that’s not enough.  We must look out for our sanity and our humanity. While we continue to survey our environment, by all means, be sure we see all of it, not just the stuff that scares the crap out of us.

See the beauty. It’s there; just look.

And then

– 2016 New Year’s Resolution –

When You See Something Good, SAY SOMETHING GOOD!

It costs us absolutely nothing to give a compliment, a round of applause, or a simple smile. There’s quite a return on investment, though; we get to feel better about ourselves and our world. Every kindness we do, no matter how big or small, puts more goodness into the world.

Who doesn’t want more goodness?

Happy New Year!

P.S. If you answered “me” to that last question, I hope it is because your world is just overflowing with so much goodness that you just could not handle another bit of wonderful! If there’s another reason, know that I am smiling warmly at you, right now.

Take that!1-6-16
