The smallest act of love

How much does it cost to show someone some love with a kind word, gesture, thoughtfulness, act of kindness. The answer is nothing at all. You just have to be willing to reach out and do so. You don’t have to do anything big. It can be small. Love is not measured by the amount of something. Love is measured by what we do. If you were to get someone you know that bagel with some cream cheese and a coffee. Man do you know how much of an impact that will have on someone. It simply says I thought about you. Had you on my mind and I’m just looking out for ya. But key is my people is to be genuine. Don’t just do it because you hope to get something in return. Don’t do it just to get a reaction out of someone. Naw, don’t do that. Then operation you screwed up will be in full affect. Do it because it’s in you and you truly want to make someone else’s day. Do it because you’re not thinking about you but that person. Sit back and watch how you will be full of joy and happiness that you blessed someone else and made their day. You will be amazed. I guarantee it.

I am reminded of a quote that I seen on a Pinterest pin

People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
-Maya Angelou

Show some love. Put that love, joy and happiness in rotation so everybody can get a touch. Let a person’s thoughts or lasting impression of you be something that they will remember.

And I’m gone. Peace.

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
