I have made a conscious choice not to watch or listen to the news. I assure you, I don’t miss what’s happening in the world. I just hear about the news differently.
I choose each day to do my best to love, trust and create joy. The media’s emphasis on negativity and fear takes me away from being able to do so.
It’s never been more important to find the happy and be with love. If not for our sake, we must do it for our children. Life has so much amazing and so much love, bliss and joy to savour. Let’s be models for how to live by taking it all in. Let’s spend our energy on these expansive emotions and states of being, as opposed to fear and negativity.
Love is the antidote for fear. Fear is what creates judgments, anger, and hatred. Let’s create a safe and loving world for our children to grow so their spirits can soar. It is possible. It begins with bite sized steps… It begins with how well we love ourselves. Next, it’s how well we love our partner, spouse, or those closest to us. These two relationships (to the self and those closest to us) are the foundation of it all. Our goal must be unconditional love for both. Love is such a powerful expansive energy, but conditional love dampens this. The reality is, cheesy or not, that love truly has the power to change the world.
Let’s do the work we need to do to love unconditionally, so we can live with strength in everyone’s hearts and lives. If for no other reason, let’s do it for our children.
