(1) Smile today. Even if you feel sad. You're worth it! Yes, people are mean. So don't be mean to yourself, too.
(2) Be nice to a mean person. Today. Yes, today. Even if you are reading this a whole year after it was written, that's okay! All the better.
(3) Do something nice for yourself. Whether it's a bubble bath, or writing in that journal, forget this commercial world for one second and do something sweet for yourself.
(4) Help a starving family or person. Whether they are in Africa or Equador, take it upon yourself to sponsor or find a family to send money to!
That's all for now. Except for one thing. Remember to stay away from big companies that will hurt you in the long run, even if you think you are saving a quick buck now. I sure don't want my little one growing up, just to commit suicide when he can't use his legs anymore because he is so debilitated and brain damaged from working in an Ipod factory. So go ahead, save your dollars, at your own risk! Shop local. Think world peace. Love families.
