Thoughts for a Monday

Anyone who knows me knows that I am pretty much a joyful person; I believe happiness is overrated and the term “do what makes you feel good” asinine. Being joyful and being obtuse the happenings of the world around you are two different issues. I am very well aware of what is going on in the world, no, I do not ignore it, I just do what I can to make my corner of the world a little bit better. I won’t go into detail on how I do that, my parents taught me that you should do your good works in private, not for the world to see. It dilutes them if everyone can see and if you are doing it for personal glory not heavenly glory.
Really I think you should do nice things for the people around you, helping our neighbor is not too old fashioned of an idea these days is it? If we help each other and the neighboring city helps each other and so on and so on, well eventually everyone will be helped. I firmly believe the United States of America cannot save every third world country from themselves. I believe we should help the people, especially the children that are in 3rd world conditions right here. The backwoods of Tennessee and Virginia come to mind as well as some areas of Louisiana. I am sure other states need help as well. Let’s help our own, then when we have solved our issues, move on to other countries.
I know I am on a soapbox today, and it being Monday is perhaps not appreciated, however, it is what is on my mind right now.
I have been called overly optimistic, annoyingly happy, and eternally joyful, I’ll take them all, I do not see any of those traits as an insult. However, I can be obstinate, purposely obtuse, and when provoked, ha, all I can say is watch out. I can argue with the best of them, thank you Dad and Grandma for teaching me two different ways to win an argument.
I hope everyone has a great Monday, I hope everyone finds something nice to do for someone in your life this week. Karma….
