In 1971 John Lennon wrote a song called “Imagine”
The genius of John Lennon is astounding and we can learn a lot from this 3 minute and 3 second song.
“Imagine all the people”
Now I want you to do just that, imagine all the people in the world, there are seven billion of us now.
Out of the seven billion human beings on this planet, there is you a single person.
My question is, what can you do to make a difference?
It does not have to be some ground breaking discovery that will reverse the effects of global warming in a week, although that would be nice, and if you are working on it please do not stop 🙂
It does not have to be something that will take up a lot of your time or use even a dollar of your money.
I think as we progress as a species and time becomes more of a commodity to all of us, we really need to stop and reflect a little bit.
What can you do to make a difference in other people’s lives ?
When is the last time you just smiled at someone?
When is the last time you held a door for someone?
And by someone I mean a stranger.
You will be surprised at how a simple facial expression, or “hello, how are you today” or any other random act of kindness will brighten someones day.
We are human beings, I feel it is time we become humans doing, doing nice things for each other.
John Lennon also wrote in his song
You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
Please be nice to one another, be kind to strangers, and you will see how we will not have to “imagine” a better world, and how much better your life will be.
By the way may dear friends,
How are you today ?
