Sometimes we have to distance ourselves from people not because of who they are or what they’ve done or failed to do, but because of who we become when we’re connected to them. Loving people draw love out of others, same with positivity, honesty, etc. Make sure you’re around people who help you reveal everything that’s amazing about you!
There is a difference between being free, knowing that you’re free, and living like you’re free. There is a difference between being loved, knowing that you’re loved, and living like you’re loved. There are levels to this, lol. Make sure, that with any and every thing you receive, whether it be peace, joy, wealth, love, freedom, confidence, wisdom, etc., that you use it to enrich your life and help others do the same. Don’t just get to get; receive to transform in some type of way. Receive to become, know to become, do to become, a better version of you!
Without injustice and inequality, number 45, North Korea preparing for war, local, state and national government failures, hurricane disasters, etc., life still remains difficult to navigate, build among opposition, and make real what we hope and envision. With all of these things, it can seem like doing anything worthwhile is either a waste of time or impossible. While we fight for what we want, what we need, and the world we want to see, we must remind ourselves that there is still beauty in the struggle. Waking up every morning, the sound of a baby cooing, flowers blooming, leaves transforming, inviting us to a season of change, and bright, blue skies that show dark days don’t last too long. Amidst all of the heartache, there is something in life to celebrate, to uplift, to enjoy, to love. Find it, absorb it, and share it. Light is the power of life!
