I wish this kid was my next door neighbor!. What a mentor and best buddy he would be. How UP would you feel after talking too him?
I think schools should show a weekly video of this kid to students young and old. He could rally Kings and Presidents. He sure lit a fire in my soul. What about you? Did he motivate you? Do find yourself just trudging along day to day? I've been thinking a LOT about what I can do to make tomorrow different than today. I know it has to start with me. I can't make anything else better unless I learn to find joy in each day. I wonder how I can do that and not run out of steam. I'm responsible for me. My mood directly effects others but doesn't necessarily have to be effected by negative people. I should carefully chose to be influence by happiness and learn how to not be effected by other peoples personalities, moods or things I can't change. I need to put energy into things I can change. Do you want to be a positive person or a negative person? Sometimes (okay often) that negative person is me telling me negative things. I'm my own worst critic. I'm pretty good at not letting anyone but those closest to me know how I feel.
The world may be a mess but there is always something that you can find that is a miracle. Something to just look at in awe. I'd also like to know who's going to write the perfect sitcom for this adorable precocious kid..
I think we'd all love to do something huge but who's to say that the simple smile we share with a stranger didn't just brighten a day that seemed horrible up until then. Are you being a part of the solution or the problem?
Have a blessed day ya'll.
P.S. I just found Kid President & learned about Soul Pancake tonight. I have a feeling you'll be seeing me post more of them.
