"THIS IS YOUR WORLD... SHAPE IT OR SOMEONE ELSE WILL!"
To a point - it's about perception (what you chose to see or focus on) but a lot of it has to do with ACTION!!! Some of the strongest individuals I know of, are those who through adversity have bulldozed their way clear of the muck and got to the other side and have a real life now! To blindly or numbly accept our circumstance is a passive and NON-ACTIVE approach to Living.... Rather than shrug our shoulders and shake our heads at the injustices and horrors of the world, wouldn't it be better to STAND UP and CHANGE things as much as we can where ever we are???
So, let's take this to heart - If we look around and don't like what we see, who can we blame but ourselves, because in some small part we all have contributed to it getting to this point and if we do nothing - Nothing will ever change!! We can start today - NOW! This very minute! We can start by loving ourselves and showing kindness to ALL! Forgiving ourselves and those we have held hostage with our unforgiving hearts, our stubborn minds and harsh words!! We can think of doing for others more often, sooner and without reluctance! We can share a smile with someone on the street even when we are in a hurry or frustrated or sad! We can make a point to HELP not harm everywhere we go and with all of our words and deeds. We can be forthright, honest and gentle and be trustworthy as well as trusting! We can be strong for others and in spirit and we can be gracious and humble as well!
There are a million ways we can DO SOMETHING on an everyday basis and it truly does start at home.... By teaching our children to value PEOPLE and honesty and kindness instead of things and status and appearance... We can stop saving for a new car and instead save time at the end of our day for our loved ones... We can remember how much our parents sacrificed for us and loved us unconditionally and be there for them UNCONDITIONALLY without them having to ask us first... We can let people off the hook instead of making them feel bad just to feel superior ourselves.... And we can accept that we are EXACTLY the person we were meant to be and begin to embrace all of our past and every hope for tomorrow rather than knocking ourselves down for not being who we think we should be or for what we have done in the past....
Evil is only HOPELESSNESS, DOUBT and FEAR, not an immovable force that will break us down or that can withstand anything!!! Once we realize that - We can do ANYTHING!!! LOVE TRULY CAN CONQUER ALL!!!! <3
Let's us do all part by being a Positive Force in the world around us!
