You can call me a dreamer. I have been one all my life. It has been a successful coping mechanism and a shield that helped me get through some of the worst moments in my life. And I still dream of a world where people are fed and children are playing and living a good life.
A world where children can play and have fun!
I write this article to help us focus on the positives, the deeds that are done in the name of human goodness, kindness, selflessness. There are so many people and organizations in the world that are making great strides to help others out of poverty and strife.
There are so many good things that go on in the world!
Amnesty International and World Vision are two such entities. They are in the fields and the courtrooms around the world and are winning battles for human rights, feeding thousands of people and giving them back their lives. Give them a look. Both are great causes to cheer on. You can even volunteer for them.
Here in Australia, amongst other organisations, are the Indigenous Community Volunteers who give of their time to help people grow their lives by teaching them skills, so they too can look after themselves and their families, which creates a sense of worth and hopefulness.
There is room for peace and hope!
Every day there are so many good things that go on. The goodnews.com.au is a great place to read about these things.
Did you know there is a woman who in her 90's makes a dress every day for a little girl in Africa? She has made close to a thousand of them and she says she will continue to make more. She does this selflessly and gives of herself and her time.
These things are good for our souls. They give us hope and faith that the human race can exist in a sphere of goodness. Although these deeds don't make the evening news, they are out there.
There is lots of room for selfless acts!
These acts of kindness and goodness help me believe in people and the fact that one day we may all live in harmony. The amount of people who choose to spend their lives striving and helping, who achieve and do great things in the world, should get equal voice and their good deeds should be recognized.
Dream along with me!
Spend some time and take a look at the good things that go on. It will do your heart a world of good and you can dream along with me.
