Some people just might claim that the ostrich is the most imitated in all the animal kingdom. I'm sure you know people who bury their heads in the sand - perhaps not literally, but certainly figuratively. "Let me close my eyes to all the bad things and pretend they aren't even happening." Well my friends! That doesn't accomplish anything! It does absolutely nothing! Bad things still exist, even when you refuse to look at them.
Now I don't usually write about what NOT to do, because I have always preferred the more positive side of things. So instead of suggesting that we not bury our heads in the sand, let me suggest instead that we go through life with our eyes wide open doing the best we can and looking for chances along the way to make change and to do good.
We all have the power to make change. Sometimes it might not seem like it, but even small things can make a difference. I was reminded the other day about the power of a simple smile. It feels good to contribute. It really does. Burying your head only makes us feel bad in the end. I much prefer the good!
