There are a LOT of people who are struggling right now. Maybe they are in the middle of a bad circumstance. Maybe they are going through a divorce. Maybe their child is ill. Maybe they are ill. Maybe they lost their job. Maybe…
In fact, Clinical Depression is estimated to affect 1 in 10 Americans. The number of people diagnosed with Depression increases by 20% each year! Now these numbers (10%, 20%) may not seem high, but think about it this way. When you are in line at your coffee shop this morning, 1 out of every 10 people in there with you could be suffering from a depression disorder. That just plain sucks.
So what can you do today?
Start with a smile. Your smile may not fix all their problems but smiles have been clinically proven to be contagious. Lighten up the room, count your blessings and then share them through generous acts, kindness and compassion. Do your part today to make everyone’s day just a little bit better, because we don’t have any idea at all what they are going through :). Just some food (or coffee) for thought.
Have an awesome week!
