All the recent talk about “Special Exemptions”, “Continuing Resolutions” serve as a reminder that the world around us can get so caught up in overbearing dialogue that we forget the true special opportunity that is right there before our eyes but clouded in chaos. This isn't about politics, its not even about the rampant indecision and bureaucracy that continues to invade the news. It's about Love.

Love Heals. Yes, that is a pretty broad statement, but its accurate. You see it every single time a person makes the effort to reach out and love someone else. A random act of love can totally turn someone's day around immediately. I'm sure it has happened to you, and you can do the same for others. There is no better feeling than to know that you have done something that as a direct result, you have made someone's day better.

The same can be said about life in general. Think about your own life and those people that made the effort to go out of there way to help mold you into who you are today. It could be your parents, a teacher, a friend that has given so much of themselves to ensure that your life has moved along a much better path. They made a special exemption and effort to focus on you and your life is the better for them having made that decision.

We must do the same today. Who can we reach out to help make their lives better? The very fact that you took the time to leave your own little world and seek to help them will make a lasting impression on both of you. How about it? Let's pay it forward and make our own “special exemption” to reach out to someone that had no idea that you even cared. You will be the better for it, and our world will be a better place!
