“A happy soul is the best shield for a cruel world.” ~ Atticus
The world can be a cruel, harsh place. Somewhere that can bring about despair and a crushing sort of sadness that can overwhelm and destroy the good. And yet there is a defense, a shield that you can employ that can keep the creeping monsters of hate and ignorance at bay and can even defeat them in the end.
That shield is a happy soul.
A soul that is filled to overflowing with compassion, joy, and love. A happy soul is soft in a world of hardness. It’s a light that beams out into the darkness and shows the shadows for what they are.
A happy soul is one that allows kindness and goodness to bubble over and it draws it’s strength from just how gentle it is. A happy soul doesn’t ignore the negative or the cruelties of reality, it simply acknowledges that they exist and then turns it’s attentions and efforts to the positives it’s capable of. A happy soul brings with it the ability to share and create everyday kindness and glee. It’s as contagious as a smile or a pure, delighted laugh and the ripples that a happy soul sends out into the world help it to heal.
The best part about a happy soul is that it starts with You. Today choose joy, choose to seek out the goodness, choose to create a shield of positivity with your soul and see how the world around you changes for the better. It may only be in small ways, but it will change and you will be so much the better for it.
