I have lived a very eye opening few days. I saw the harsh true colors of strangers.
sweet friends, I felt it in my recent travel. I love to travel. the closeness I feel when I visit important pieces of my heart spread around the country is an ironic heart medicine. but in my travel there was an energy among strangers I couldn’t help but notice. mostly because they all felt like just that, strangers.
it wasn’t kind. it actually made me feel anxious. that anxiety quickly turned to a heavy and sad heart. we are classifying each other in unfair categories::: race, religion, money. benefit of doubt has become last pick on a list of hatred. the news is scary. scary is the new normal. the world feels unsafe. I prayed. as a diehard believer in the power of positive thought and the law of attraction, I was trying to adjust my perspective. I was digging around in my suitcase and there it was. a tiny two worded reminder on pretty, textured paper::: LOVE HEALS.
I am asking you to continue to spread good. to keep pushing yourselves to experience the world and let the world experience you. your good. your smile. your kindness. your people. your children. your friends.
our solution is buried in prayer. it’s buried in travel. it’s buried in miles. it’s buried in new faces.
see. touch. experience. fill your life with well lived moments. it doesnt have to be on planes, it doesn’t have to be costly. it can be the smell of country sun mixed with dirt roads. the feel of corn silk in your hands and the sound the stalks make when they wind dance. give your tiny people grass under their toes and miles under their feet. try new food, learn a new word. train a generation unafraid to meet new people, share their world, see the magic in good people, love like Jesus.
raising the next generation of adventurers isn’t always easy but watching them learn to experience life fully will be the healing. share your perspective with friends. create a tribe of ones that shed light. guide your people to walk in love. train your brain to think in love. learn to find, attract, embrace good spirits. turn each heart over like stones of faith. a hunt for the good. seek the amazing. say thank you. hold the door open. read good news. write good words. explore. pray. just pray. prayer cancels out the crazy. love heals.
make this day a new month. a month of freedom celebration. a month to reframe your perspective. a new chapter in healing. happy july sweet souls.
