It is also “Random Acts of Kindness” day – the day where we, you, I must try and do at least one random act of kindness to another individual – better still if it’s someone you don’t know. Believe me, it’ll make you feel a lot better about the act of kindness if the person is a complete stranger, especially if they thank you for it.
This RAK day got me thinking.
A lot of blogs, mine included, focus far too strongly on the negative. We are always hoping for the big scoop to bring down a government. Or we’re always looking for something to moan about and vent our frustrations. Really, it’s all a bit depressing and negative.
So, in an effort to lighten up I’ve made the decision to only focus on the positive – for one month at least. I’m guessing that if I do this solidly for a month the outcome will be so ‘positive’ that I won’t want to ever think/talk/share negative things again. In the same way as Poneke has given up writing on politics, at least until after the election, I’m only going to be sharing with you uplifting tales of courage, generosity, good humour, and positivism. I just hope I can find them.
I want to start this off by apologising to Robbie McFadzean who, while he sacrificed his worldly possessions to make room for his beer in the back of his 4-wheel drive as he escaped a massive landslip, is probably a very decent chap. And I shouldn’t malign such decent folk.
So sorry Robbie. I hope your house is OK, and you are enjoying your beer.
Here’s to good news and happiness.
