The Ice Bucket Challenge

Everywhere you look on television, and social media, people are taking the ice bucket challenge for ALS. Every one is jumping on the bandwagon for this one. I do love that it is for a very worthy cause. I would like to use this opportunity to give you additional thoughts on this ice bucket phenomenon.

With a lot of people putting so much energy and thought into taking this challenge, and also challenging other people, what about if we put as much energy and thought into other things in our lives. It seems like almost everyone wants to be included in on this and are willing to show the world through social media that we support this. I know a lot of people are just probably following the lead of someone else. In doing this. Just because they were challenged.

What I am issuing a challenge to everyone else out there. I would like to challenge you to create a positive change in your life. I also challenge you to be that change and challenge others to make a positive change in their life.

A positive change could be something as simple as your attitude. Instead of looking at the glass half-empty look at it as half full. Instead of complaining how bad things are start to look at the blessings in your life and be grateful. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus in on your solutions.

A positive change could also be losing weight or quit smoking. A positive change could be to quit yelling at your kids, and taking a different approach with them. A positive change could be just to treat people nicer and with respect. I think you get the idea.

So that is my challenge and every person out there. I will start it off. My positive change will be to give something to a homeless person every week. Whether that be food, water, money, or serving them in some way.

Now it is your turn. Post what you will be doing on your Facebook page and pass this link along on your Facebook page as well.
