Sunday Reflection: Tell A Better Story

In life, a better story involves faithful inclusion, inspiration, love, peace, grace, laughter, choice. Without those things, life turns into a very mean existence for many. This is the story I wish to tell and to encourage.

Without these stories, our world would be full of chaos. There has been so much suffering and pain. People don’t have to suffer if we would genuinely love one another.

Inspiration can go a long way to promote the things above and to create a place where we can all have the promise of tomorrow delivered daily.

My friends, I hope you all tell a better story do the negative and mean stuff is drowned out forever. We can do it if we make that choice. So however you share your stories do so like our lives depend upon it.

All Black Lives Matter #BLM #LGBTQ

I thought this was cool. The intersection of Black Lives Matter and Pride Month coming together to honor Black LGBTQ people and the greater fight for justice and equality. Social justice in action to seek inclusion.

A Ramble About Inclusion

I’m a bit of an oddball but everyone seeks to belong to something that makes them feel a part of a group or community. Every person should have the freedom to be themselves and to be comfortable in that expression. Inclusion is a wonderful thing and being asked to be a part of a squad is something special. Life is too short to go it alone.

Being Inclusive In Ones Language

I think inclusive language is important these days. However that seems to be a moving target of what people want to be called. Pronouns are important but it seems like that rule changes frequently. Doing the right thing by people can be very hard. No one wants to be offended but eventually it will happen.

Perhaps grace and information can help people be more considerate, more kind to one another. If one is offended by what someone calls them in an attempt to reach out then perhaps some kindness and understanding that someone cares to try to meet where they are. What this is really is treating people as you would want to be treated or something like that. Names and titles are things that are important to people so I want them to be important to me.

Personally I don’t wanna get anything wrong. As a people pleaser I really want to do right by people because I think it’s the right thing to do.
