“When you have a bad day, a really bad day, try and treat the world better than it treated you.”

Something that I think should be very prominent in young adults’ lives is the thought “do good things and good things will come your way”. The good karma that people put out in the world not only helps people who could be in need but it also makes you feel good about yourself. Feeling down or stuck in a rut? Go pack a couple lunchbags for the homeless in your town. A movement called #HashtagLunchBag is one way that shows how you can pay it forward.

Here’s a quick video that shows a small group of people coming together to make a difference in their local community. Kindness is contagious and it only takes a few people to start a movement.

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. But if you’re reading this blog you’ve found time to surf the web when instead you could be feeding the homeless or making blankets for the less fortunate. So reach out to your community, or even just your neighbors.

Or something else you can do is volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club of America. You can become a homework helper, or maybe even a youth sports coach! It all depends on what your interest are and how much time you have to dedicate. But I guarantee you’ll make the kids day just by smiling and being a strong, positive role model.

Here’s a link to help you find your local club:

SO GET OUT THERE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
