It can get overwhelming when you start listening to the news. You hear stories of corruption and greed. Stories of the involvement of corporations in politics, about judges and politicians favoring companies that donate large amounts of money to their campaigns. It seems everyone is taking advantage of others, lying, stealing, and trying to get something for nothing. You can easily feel overwhelmed by it all. But remember, you can make a difference. Focus on the the small scale, even if it’s only a small seemingly meaningless thing. Talk to the people you meet throughout the day, smile at someone, be kind, find a charity to be involved in, or send some money to help someone less fortunate than yourself. Perhaps you can take some time to teach someone how to garden, or grow their own food. Take some time to do something nice today, be a voice of compassion in our corrupt world. You’ll be amazed at how it will foster hopefulness in you and those around you!
