To Make A Difference More, Care More

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Care MoreReading through some 4th of July commenting on social media I was disappointed to think some people were disheartened with America, their country. I have always thought differences with civil debate were good for our country, but people veering into hate of others, it serves no one. It reminded me in life that we all should figure out how to make a difference.

Make a difference in life, love, relationships, the environment, your workplace, your home, to voices that can't defend themselves, with health, with helping others, with being your best, with just being courteous. And my sharpened pencil idea that stuck with me with reading people who seemed to not even take the time to unconditionally LISTEN to others without essentially shouting them down, was we all NEED TO CARE MORE. Caring really is not that hard to do in every instance I mentioned. It is just a little thing. A little more conscious energy on your part.

Think if you cared to say thank you. To open a door for someone. If someone had a differing opinion to say isn't that interesting? Non judgmental. Understanding. Caring enough with the sick and disabled or the downtrodden or the hopeless or forlorn to give them aid and comfort. A helping hand. Again, not that hard, just another thought direction, a boost of a positive feeling towards another. Work on CARING MORE now that we have celebrated another year of our country's freedom. I guarantee it will make all the difference in the world toward whatever or whomever you direct it at. YOU will become that differencemaker!!

Totally agree Gary Woltal .  I post an inspirational message every day on FB and with each post I encourage people to make it a great day by dong a random act of kindness for someone and change the world one person at a time. I started doing that after the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando a year ago. I just keep thinking if people would just show some act of kindness, maybe we wouldn't have so many senseless things like random shootings happening. Forever the optimist. Great post.

Gary - this is true. Excellent blog post. At first it feels like it is going against the grain, but it really isn't. It is common sense. A lot of common sense

Each side of a disagreement passionately agrees with their cause. Listen and understand their points, even though you may disagree with them. Why are we in a world that says, "I don't agree with you so therefore I don't like you".?

 Fantastic message Gary! Where is the LOVE button? Too man people lead with gate these days and the internet allows a sense of anonymity with some people. The hateful rhetoric would not exist so much in person.

I was in traffic this morning - and I was in a hurry.  A woman was trying to pull into my lane from across the street . . . and I stopped and waved her in.  It was one of the smallest things I could have done, but she waved energetically at me and I waved back. I think we both felt good.

Gary, what's up good to hear from you, a wise man as usual. Could you scream that from a mountain top to the rest of the country?

Gary- your wisdom and caring soul has been missed here. We need to care more about each other and keep our minds open to how we can be of help.

Dear Gary,

Amen to that. I would say, we can all agree that regular meals, a roof over our heads & help, when we need it are some basic things that all of us want. After that, you have to hash out priorities & details about, let's say transportation, safety, schools & other needs, but bringing together as many stakeholders as possible usually leads to better outcomes & smaller mistakes.

I'm not sure why this popped up on my radar today Gary- July 4th was a while ago:-)  But I completely agree.  It is not that difficult to care and demonstrate caring in so many ways- if everyone did more a little each day- what a difference. 

I think many are disheartened, and full of hostility, but could find a way to re-direct that energy in a more positive way

I agree, especially on social media - people can be so rude and cruel. Is it because they feel hidden? I'm glad in my small town people still hold doors open, make eye contact and compliment one another.

How beautiful! Certainly we need to hear more of this and all take action to make a difference, no matter how small, in the lives of others!

Too many people spend their time complaining instead of trying to make a difference.

I applaud your message.

There are simple ways to make a difference.  As you say--civil conversation about differences is a start.  The country seems so divided now and looks like it will stay that way for the foresable future, esp in DC.  Make a difference in your own daily life and vote!
