Sunshine

Sunshine!

Yes, that’s you.

Sunshine tends to put people in a pretty good mood. Unfortunately, depending on different atmospheric factors, it’s not always sunny (even if you’re in Philadelphia).

It’s a good thing I’m not just talking about the literal sunshine produced by that burning star in the sky. I’m talking about most anything that makes you smile. For you, this could be your friends, family, pets, the fact that your neighbor’s cat is silly enough to get stuck in a tree again.. either way, there’s potential for a big ol’ grin especially with an open mindset.

Yet, this works both ways. I wish we lived in a world where we didn’t only hear about the bad news. There is so much publicity showing the world as a terrible place. The media wants to rain on your parade. Jealous people want to throw some shade. Point is, the world is beautiful and sometimes it gets tough but, you’re incredibly good at creating your own sunshine (if you want to be).

Sunshine is a choice. It may be difficult to find on your own especially when times are tough. Luckily, surrounding yourself with people who bring out the best in you can lead to a better life.

I really want to thank you for every time you help people. Kindness and love is the glue that binds us together and makes life worth living. Your actions don’t go unnoticed.

Youaresunshine was inspired by you. Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I get fired up by the positive energy from others and I love it. I’m not the only one you’ve made feel special!

I love traveling and adventuring to places I have never visited before. A byproduct of such a lifestyle is that I meet people from all around the world. Through my experiences, I encounter countless examples of why the world as a whole is not portrayed correctly by the media.

Most people are born good. If for some reason they do wrong, that may not be who they really are. When someone is unkind to you, it is not a reflection of who you are or who they are.. It’s more of a reflection of what has happened to them. When someone is damaged by the world, it’s more difficult to remain cool, calm and collected in tense situations. They start reacting to things instead of responding. They speak or act without considering the repercussions associated with their behavior.

Now it’s our turn to be their sunshine. We need to act in a way that shows the beauty of the world that they have been missing. We return their jolted response with forgiveness. With love. With a kind heart that is caring for a hurt individual. After all, an injured person is probably who you’re dealing with.

Obviously there are some outliers but they are few and far between. Be that good person for others and you’ll inspire a chain reaction of kindness. You can be the proactive positive piece of the puzzle that makes someone feel whole.

Don’t forget, your actions which may seem so small and insignificant, are actually magnified beyond your scope of understanding. What you do today will radiate further than you can ever imagine.

That’s because YouAreSunshine.

Thank you.

Much love,

Jacob Pearson
