YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT! 🙂
All our lives we meet amazing people and see amazing things. Several years ago today Michael Morris simply wanted to brighten peoples day on his birthday for just $1. His time with us was short but beautiful. I was not fortunate enough to meet this wonderful person Michael but I was however lucky to meet his sister Andi Morris who is building something wonderful, in Michaels memory, to brighten peoples days. I will be brightening peoples day today and Andi would be eternally grateful for others who participate as well. Andi is carrying out a tradition that has grown so much in such a short time.
In honor of Mike’s birthday, we will be continuing a tradition that he started. He called his event “Free Love One Dollar” and it was simply a means to brighten a stranger’s day. Participation is easy:
***Get some $1 bills (even if you can only afford 1!)
***Get an envelope for each dollar and decorate it (You should probably include the phrase Free Love One Dollar or in memory of Mike Morris or both and/or other encouraging words and pictures, so people understand the dollar is there to make them smile)
***Take the dollar in the envelope and place it on a car’s windshield. Some ideas for venues are hospital parking lots, nursing home parking lots, churches, etc. The possibilities are endless, but there are a few places to avoid: mailboxes (that’s a felony), private property, illegal things 😛
***Take pictures! Make it fun, bring lots of people, race each other, smile 🙂
***Post pics and share stories
We are encouraging EVERYONE to invite ANYONE!!! This event is to share love in the memory of Mike. He would love to see everyone celebrate his day with happiness and sharing love with anyone and everyone, just as he always did. This can be a HUGE event! Invite friends in other states and countries to share the fun on September 25 🙂
In loving memory of Michael Jason Morris
September 25, 1979 – June 5, 2012
This is last minute notice for some of you but as you can see it is super easy if you would like to participate.
Let us all brighten someone’s day today and have fun doing it!
“The only reason I am successful is because I have stayed true to myself.”
Lindsey is a Dub-step Violinist. She grow up with a heavy classical background. With age she began to experiment with mixing different kinds of music, ultimately coining a new genera of music for many to continue to follow. She was a quarter finalist on America’s Got Talent. She did not win it all but she kept going. She stayed true to her self and is now living in a world she only once dreamed of, performing spectacular music.
Staying true to yourself can be hard, it does take some determination. There are so many things that tempt us in other directions other than our own. How many success stories have you heard that were derived of fake actions or fake directions? None! Some may come close but eventually fall. To succeed you must expect hard times, you must be prepared for failure and rejection. Be yourself in every aspect and you will go far. As you go to things you want they will start to come to you at the same time.
I have lost so many people but gained many more by staying true to myself. Being me seems to be so hard sometimes but I stay true to myself and my goals in life. I am weird or annoying or unintellectual in the eyes of many but in the eyes of many more I have built a level of trust that can never be broken. I have built a level of determination for what I want out of life, that does not go unseen. I have always had my heart open for all those who wish to treat it with respect. It was not till a little after high school that I realized who I really was….I was meant to spread positivism and acts of kindness, and spread I will. I wish, in my last breaths, that I still have some inspiration left in me to pass on to those that lean over in care. That is my success, making as many people in this world as possible smile and keep smiling.
I am Kind, I am caring, I am sensitive, I am weird, I am funny, I am forgiving, I am strong, I am me!
Have an amazing weekend everyone. Lindsey’s Music is amazing, I feel she is shaping a new era of listening pleasure. Check out the song I am addicted to right now.
