We are living in an interesting time. On one hand we’ve watched, or marched with, millions of people standing up for their beliefs and rights. A powerful show of love and community. On the other hand, there are those filled with such hatred that they willingly sacrifice their lives to create violence and destruction. It’s alarming and disheartening.
What can you do to help yourself and those around you?
Consciously choose love over fear. It’s not easy, but like most difficult things, it’s the most worthwhile option. Know that your small acts of kindness. and large acts of standing up for love, make a difference. Send love to those affected, send cards to those around you in distress, remember each one of us carries our own light in the world.
The destructive forces only win if they are successful in destroying us. They wish to use fear to turn us against one another but we’re stronger than that.
Let your light shine. If there are people in your sphere you don’t know and are afraid of because they came from a different country or have a different life experience, jump over your fear and get to know them.
Extending yourself and disrupting your own comfort zone will help you understand what’s important to them. It will help you connect soul to soul. Making those who feel like outsiders welcome in your community will also help them adapt and love your world just as much as you do.
When you see someone struggling with a task, ask to help them. Don’t assume people around you have it all together. There’s not a single person on this planet who has it all together.
Celebrate those around you. Tell them you love them, appreciate them, that they are valued whether they succeed or fail.
Do that for yourself too. When you look in the mirror, remind yourself that you are amazing. You may not always feel or act that way, but whatever if is that you came here to do, you can do it. And what you came here to do doesn’t need to be a crazy, universe-changing goal. Maybe you just came here to connect, to help others, to experience life, to find happiness. Use your time here to be good to yourself, and everyone around you.
