We’ve Lost That Loving Feeling
Things have been a little crap of late!
No matter what your political views, you’ve probably been annoyed by what’s going on in the world of politics lately. That’s not just here in the UK either, it’s happening everywhere and it seems to be reaching a level of hysteria! Things are getting a little crazy and it’s very interesting to see the reaction that this brings out in people. We all just need a little bit of kindness!
Some People love nothing more than a good political debate, and whilst I agree that a good debate is healthy, things can often turn nasty when people have a difference of opinion. You see more of this on social media than anywhere else.
Bringing Back The Love
I wanted to focus on how a certain community have reacted to these events, a community I have to say I am extremely proud to be a part of. There are lots of mums, and parents in general in this community, and they are mostly from Sheffield or the surrounding areas, or have a connection with Sheffield somehow! This community is on Facebook, it’s a baby-wearing community called Sheffield Slings. These ladies and gents are amazing! You can ask the “hive” almost anything and someone will know the answer or will be willing to find out for you!
When Brexit happened, a lot of people were upset, unsure, angry and afraid. The slingers community recognised this and started something called RAOK (random act of kindness) I thought it was amazing then, and after the recent presidential election, the RAOK movement has happened again! People within this community offered what they could, for free, to others who wanted it.
I’ve seen offers to bake a batch of cookies, offers to have a sling consultation, offers to have items of clothing made, a massage, Christmas decorations made, a meet up for coffee and cake to get to know other parents better, the list goes on!
I offered a Burts Bees gift set, a bottle of fizz and a box of chocolates. A couple of very lucky ladies won my gifts and were extremely grateful.
What a wonderful idea, it absolutely breeds love, kindness, and community spirit which is exactly what the world needs more of.
In a world where the bad is so regularly shoved into our faces by the media, it’s even more important to focus on the good instead! So..Here I am, shining a light on the good! Let’s hear more of the stories where people love and help each other! Plenty of it goes on in the world, we just need to know more about it!
Be The Change
If everyone did something kind for someone else the world would be a much happier place. Let me know in the comments below what you did for someone to make their day better.
Be the change you want to see in the world!
