You can always give hope.
This holiday season, I invite you to find a way to spread a little more hope around this planet.
Pass an unsolicited smile. Wave a friendly hello to a stranger. Pick up something someone dropped. Hold the door open. Let someone go in front of you. Compliment someone out of the blue. Wink at a child. Drop a quarter in the bucket of someone less fortunate or extend a hand to help someone up in whatever tiny way you can afford. It doesn't have to be much and you don't have to tell a soul you did it.
Just do yourself a favor and make the world we live in just a tad more bearable. It'll do wonders for your own sense of hope. And the best part is...hope is contagious. So please pass it on.
