I would like this world to step back to the days before Tweets.

I would like this world to step back to the time before everyone walked around glued to their phone, either with earbuds, Bluetooth, or head down, fingers furiously texting.

I would like this world to learn to really laugh again ~ deep belly laughs that make the sides hurt from jokes that are not hurtful or mean.

And I would really like us all to walk outside, take a deep breath, listen to the wind in the trees, the bird sounds, even the sounds of traffic and just pay attention. Pay attention to our own heartbeat. Find that quiet inside and then share it.

Share it with the child glued to the TV set or computer screen.
Share it with the partner or friend that is having a really bad day and just needs someone to talk to.
Share it with a wave at the neighbor down the street as you drive by.
Share it with a “thank you” to the person at the checkout at the grocers.
Share it with your dog or cat who looks at you with those big eyes that say, “I love you no matter what”.

Just don’t “Share” it with hundred of “friends” who are really complete strangers.

Share it with those that mean something in your life.
Share it with those that need a helping hand.
Share it with those that have suffered sadness.

The time has come to  engage in life. Turn off the computer, the TV, the phone, the internet.

Share yourself.
