Do good in this world, spread kindness and constantly give back. I firmly believe that's arguably the most important lesson I have ever picked up in my life.
How can you make a difference? Do the following:
Be the best version of yourself to everyone you encounter. Yes, there are various hurdles that will arise in your life on a daily basis, but you can rise above that and be the reason why someone smiles, laughs or feels secure.
Choose one deserving organization per month and send some money in their direction. In a world of PayPal and e-Transfers, it's quite easy to make that possible. Don't wait until Christmas or any other holiday, just do it now. It makes all the difference to them and it's always needed. It will undoubtedly free you and bring joy to others in the process.
While sending money to an organization is a wonderful gesture, your time is equally as valuable. Take time to volunteer and get involved in your community or with a cause close to your heart. There seems to be this belief that we can wait until retirement, but there's no better time than the present to reach out.
This isn't a post I copied and pasted from another timeline or pulled from a forum page. It's merely something I needed to express and share with you. While you might visit the timeline of Chris Toplack on social media for laughter or to smile, please understand that this matters more to me than any joke I could ever tell.
