Be The Change: A Splash Of Niceness Doesn't Hurt Anyone

She closes her eyes and thinks what kind of a better person could she become tomorrow. Her pulse raises, blood rushes in her veins, and her brain won't shut down because of all the over thinking. She knows and realizes that her mood will change and she'll be that same laughable and immature girl who not only thinks of the future as perfect but as well as herself. The realization of that being me made me think how a terrible person I was. I had to change the way I acted and I had to realize I’m not the only one who lives in this world. I've wished for the best but sometimes it is better to stop wishing and start doing. I now believe that it is better to be humble then believe you own the world. No, the world isn’t full of pink and smiling faces but once you do a small gesture of kindness to someone they become happy. All I want for myself is to be a person who can be there for anyone whenever I'm needed; I want to be the help. I hope people can also realize that the world can become a very happy place when helping others than only themselves. Not everyone can be fixed but I believe just a drop of happiness makes that one persons day the best.
