The other night my sister gave me one of the greatest compliments I could receive.  She was talking about some new TV show where they set people up to see what people would do in certain situation.  A situation maybe, having an old man in the parking lot and he can’t find his keys and when he does it is clear that he is in no shape to drive.  My sister said that she is waiting for them to catch me, because she knows that I would do the “right thing”.   What is the right thing and how often do we do it.  I want to think that most people would help this man out and do what they can to do so.  What would you do?  Would you look the other way?  Pass on the other side of the parking lot?  Now days they call helping the random act of kindness.  I just think it is the right thing to help others out that are in need.  I challenge you to purposely look for someone to help today.  It not only helps them, but it makes you feel good and brings meaning to your life. 
 


Do you know one of those people who go right to the gloom and doom places?  Or maybe you are one of them.  You know when something goes wrong the whole roof is going to fall in and everyone is going to die.  There are times that most of us have gone to that place.  This is the time to laugh at ourselves, but that is difficult to do when you are in the middle of the situation.  Try to look at the situation from a new perspective, a new way of looking at the issue.  Take yourself to your favorite spot in the world.  Maybe the beach?  How does the situation look like from there?  Or from the mountain top?  What do you see?  Is the situation as BIG as you thought it was?  How can you react to it in a positive way?   If you are so stuck you just can’t leave the situation then stay there and what if the worst happens?  What does it feel like?  What would happen next?  How would you get yourself out of it?
