Tuesdays, for me are kind of “meh.” Mondays, I’m jazzed to kick off the week, and Wednesday on, I’m just amping up for the weekend. But Tuesdays are just… there.
But sometimes, it takes less than five minutes to change your entire outlook on life. Below, check out two videos that have made me remember that every day, we can make a positive difference. We always have the opportunity to make a decision on how we want to feel about life… make the decision to b positive and make the world a better place.
The first video highlights a foundation that was started by good family friends of our’s to support their two daughters struggling with a rare degenerative disorder called Batten, for which there is no known cure. This video reminds me that we have to find a way to be positive everyday, no matter the situation we find ourselves in. This is also a reminder that we have the ability to make an immediate difference in our lifetime. How are you going to build into the world around you? (If you’re feeling called to learn more or to support the Gray Foundation via donation or attending an event, please learn more on their website.)
The second video highlights the story behind Nike’s new FLYEASE shoe, which allows people that struggle to put on their shoes the ability to be independent. This idea came to Nike when a 16 year old named Matthew Walzer wrote to the CEO of Nike because he could not put on his own shoes due to cystic fibrosis. Nike, being a stand up organization, is now releasing this shoe to the public so that thousands across the nation can live a more independent life. This video reminds me that we should speak our voices for positive change, and that really listening to those speaking to you can change lives.
