t's the end of 2012 and a lot of us are celebrating Christmas or some other holiday but what ever it is doesn't really matter to me! It's time to come together and give! Those of us with MS often hear or say "there is always someone else out there who has it worst then you". This is true but don't get me wrong, having MS is still hard, but since it's that time of the year we should all really be thankful for what we do have and try to give all we can or provide what ever kind of help we can to those who are less fortunate then us! We can't change the entire world, but we can do what ever we can to improve it. Everything makes a difference!
Today I went through all my clothes and put a bunch of older shirts that don't fit or I don't wear into a big plastic bad. I then took that bag down the street to the church where two Salvation Army donation bins rests. Someone out there will be glad to get that clothing, someone out there will appreciate the jacket I gave away, it all helps! My life philosophy is a bit like this: Life is like a pond of water, everyone is floating among it. We all cause tiny ripples in this water that spread out and effect different floaters differently. I want to create the largest ripple possible and help everyone in this world that I can and maybe helping them will cause them to help someone else! I don't want to be famous in life but I do want to have made a difference in the world even if who ever's life I do end up changing doesn't realize that it was me or that I even exist!
Anyways, this simple act of donating took me about 15 minutes and it might end up helping a homeless man stay warm for the winter, isn't that worth the minimal effort? I'm sure there is something you can give up to better another life, something that just sits there waiting to be used. You keep it in your closet because maybe one day you will use it even though you haven't touched it in months! Give it away because there is someone out there with less then you who would love to have it and who will use it every day! Spread your help and joy everywhere you can even if it's just a little! I encourage you to donate something in the next couple of days, you don't have to have a lot, it doesn't have to be brand new, just find something that someone could use that you can part with!
Well, on a separate note, I will be taking the next couples days off from writing for the holidays! Ill still be online so those of you on Facebook will still be able t stay in touch. After the holidays I'll be back! Expect a new look and feel for this blog! I'll be working on that for the new years! I have a lot I want to do and if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know! This blog is for the people so I would love to know what you think! Ill try to incorporate all that I can in my new design!
I hope you all have a happy holidays and Ill talk to you all soon!
