BEING KIND SHOULD BE THE NORM
BEING KIND SHOULD BE THE NORM.
You are too tall. You are too short. You are too fat. You are too skinny. You talk this way. Why so much school? Slow down because you have all the time in the world. How did you get selected for this? Oh…I get it, you got all those awards, accolades, and recognitions because you are black and not because you stayed up all night for twenty years studying and working hard. With all that energy and motivation you must be on drugs. Why do you posts positive stuff all the time? Even though you were born in blistering poverty and raised in a single parent home on welfare, you must think you are better than “fill in the blank”.
Weekly I hear a different version of why I am the way I am. “Why don’t you just be normal” is what someone recently said. Seems society has a difficult time figuring out people who are just excited about life.
The answer is really very simple. I like the whole idea and notion of enjoying life and helping other people. Yep…that’s it. Nothing more. No sinister motive. No grand plan. Just plain ole fashion “doing the best you can with what you’ve got” kinda living.
So when you see people who defy the odds and have a passion for life, nothing is “wrong” with them, they are just hungry for more and are enjoying the journey.
