Do Good Anyways


I never thought I'd ever post a video on instagram but I've posted 3 so far. It was like the first video opened a flood gate for me. The first video I posted was a short clip from a Maya Angelou interview where her grandmum always said this

"You know what's right, just do right"

and her mum told her the same thing the same day she was leaving her house to become an independent woman, she reminded her

"When you step over my door sill, you've been raised. You know the difference between right and wrong, do right"

It's a simple principle we should all live by, the constant desire to always do the right thing even though the wrong thing may entice us. A principle that applies to the big and little things, don't drop that litter on the floor, look for a trash. As well as giving a homeless person a meal for the night cause you're in a better place. If we all did this, religious or not, everyone of us, the world would be a better better place for anyone to live in.

There's a quote by Mother Theresa I would love to leave you with

"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, they may accuse you of having selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You ... see, in the end, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway."

Let's try this thing called: Random Act of Kindness. Do something kind to someone everyday, it could be something as little as smiling at a stranger on the bus or donating to a charity. But try it, it would make you feel good and make the world a better place.
