This is a little out of the norm for me on here, but I am taking a short break while writing this from chickens, crafts and cute little log cabins. It is really important for me to say this. The really large problems in this world are not going to go away until everyone...and that is you and me....stop contributing to the mess. Everyone is so obsessed with political views and racism that we have all forgotten how to live our lives peacefully and filled with love for one another. How did this happen? I try to figure it out in my own way, mostly due to greed. Money is the motivator for most hatred. It was the motivator behind slavery, that has been pushed to the side for many years. The most important driving factor behind this type of hate is the fact that there has not been a great healing for people that feel victimized. I get this. Some will not. I will continue to stand behind my love for all human beings. I think this world is beautiful and that all people have something amazing to contribute to it. I believe all human's have the right to choose their religion, and they have the right to be heard. They have the right to be treated with respect and decency. We are all one.
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
