Addicted to Love? Put a little love in your heart

Stop what you are doing. Take a moment and think, When was the last time I did something for someone else with no benefit to myself?

If you are able bodied, and breathing without help, and you had to think about it, it’s probably been too long since you just did something nice for someone else.

When did we forget that we are in so many ways, all in this together?

The world is a mess, people are so scared that they are believing the lies of actual dictators. People are shooting children, killing in the name of religion, war, or just out and out hate, and we, you and me and everyone else are just letting it all happen.

Where does it stop? When do we realize that we all need to put a little love in our hearts?

In 1969 this song rang true and honestly, it’s even more necessary even today:

Think of your fellow man
Lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart
You see it’s getting late
Oh, please don’t hesitate
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place [x2]
For you and me
You just wait and see

Here’s the deal. I am no better than you, you are no better than me. No matter class, skin colour, education, sexual orientation, it doesn’t matter. I am human, and you are human, and being that I’m a happy man, most of the time I’m going to wish you nothing but the best in this life. For a lot of people along the way, I may just help out if I can, offer a place to stay, offer food, whatever I can do.

Something I learned as a small child, the happiness you bring yourself is fleeting, the happiness you can bring to the world could last forever.

So take a moment and think: What am I good at, what can I give to the world, and how can I make this a better place, doesn’t matter how big or small, it could be as easy as opening the door for someone or giving up your seat on the bus, you never know how you will touch someone’s life. Who know’s, it could just make the world a better place after all.
….for those of you who have no idea what song I’m referring to:
