|"You might just start a chain reaction"|
~ Rachel Joy Scott
She was an amazing young woman. It is a shame and very sad she had to die so early in life. She had so much potential.
1.) Eliminate Prejudice by looking for the best in others
2.) Dare to Dream, set goals, keep a journal or a diary
3.) Choose your influences, input determines output
4.) Kind words, small acts of kindness equal HUGE impact
5.) Start a chain reaction
Do you accept Rachel's Challenge? Because I do. Starting tomorrow morning- no. Right now. I'm going to start doing these five simple things. They may seem hard and impossible. But I will. I encourage you to do the exact same. I'm going to get a notebook and keep it as a diary/journal. I hope to do these all, and help others. Over time, I will. I will reach my goals and I will do what I want to shoot for. I will and so can you. Just do these five easy things. And you can do it. A little bit of kindness can go very very far. You don't know what someone else is going through. Help them out.
Do not change yourself to fit in with some crowd or some environment that you want to be in. Just be yourself, and you'll find true friends. And true. Keep your true color. Don't change colors to try and fit in with something else. You can only hold that color for so long until your true color shows. Be yourself. Some people like the real you, not that silly mask that you try and hide behind. Some people like that silly mask you hide behind and not the real you. Well that's okay really, be with the people who like you for you not that mask. You can not hold that mask up forever. Take it down and let your true and pure color show. Its okay if some people don't like you, it only matters of what you think of you. Not those other negative people. Listen to the positive voices. You may have to look at things from different angles but you will succeed and reach your goals.
Step up and be a voice.
Accept Rachel's Challenge.
