we all try to be a little bit nicer to each other and everyone we come in contact with, do random acts of kindness, and try to be a positive force for good in this world.
Help someone who needs it, whether they say thank you or not. Don't get upset if they don't thank you. Are you helping for the thanks and recognition you get? Make a positive difference in someone's life. Be a force for positive social change. Make your voice heard, but don't shout.
And just because you help others and do good in the world doesn't mean you can't do things for yourself, too. Do something important for yourself in 2011, whether it's taking a college course, learning to crochet or taking up swimming -- something for you and just for you. Maybe you need to start with getting out of an abusive or bad situation. But whatever you do, do something you know you've wanted to or needed to do but have been putting off.
When you build yourself, you will be able to do more with what you have to make the world a better place for everyone.
Love and be loved,
