There is something to be said for taking care of your own. One of my favorite Jay-z lines is “There’s bigger problems in the world, I know but first I gotta take care of the world I know.” I love that because Everyone feels the same way. We care that children are starving in other countries but we have to take care of our own backyard first. I am cut from the cloth of taking care of those around you so they can have the ability to take care of those around them. It starts a domino effect that can reach insane numbers. From this day forth take care of those surrounding you, it doesn’t have to be with money. It can be with time, knowledge, a simple phone call to check on them. A little goes a long way with us human beings. Contrary to what Facebook statuses say, people love getting text and phone calls. It makes us feel better to be thought of. Hence the phrase, “It’s the thought that counts.” Make a difference in someone life for the rest of the month. Every day send a text or call to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. See how it makes you feel to make someone else feel thought of. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
