April 1 was my grandfather’s birthday. I remember as a kid we would always write something silly in his birthday cards eluding to some lame joke and he would always laugh the way an adult does to please a child.  
My grandfather has long since passed on, and as I write this, the world of yesteryear has as well.  

The world has woken up to the most surreal April fools day since I have been alive. I did not live through any world wars or the great depression, but my parents and grandparents did. Of course, we are facing an entirely different and invisible enemy, nonetheless, it was a profoundly life-changing time for them as well, and we are here today because they got through it. 

The reason for this post is to encourage everyone to remain positive. Look to the future. Get a new routine. Make some short- and long-term goals. We cannot change the past although we can certainly learn from it to keep moving forward.  

My heart goes out to those deeply affected by what has gripped our planet. We have to ride this out the best way we can and never forget those who have passed or who are suffering now. Previous generations faced hardships and challenges and we also have our challenges ahead. I plead to all those reading this to not give up. Crisis brings out the best and the worst in people. Be part of the solution and not the problem.  

Do something nice for someone else today and every day. Imagine one small gesture of kindness x almost eight billion people on the planet could change our world. Looking forward to the day we can all look forward to April 1 and have nothing else on our minds except inventing a harmless April Fools’ joke. 

Challenge today…let us know what kind of gesture you did today. Share in the comments below.
