Today is traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Early risers will pound the pavement and sometimes one another for the best deals. The whole thing can be chaotic and sometimes violent. It’s not worth it for a TV or computer. For those working today like my Sister my heart goes out to them. I call on all of us to be kind, respectful and mindful of their position. Retail is hard work and on days like today it can be harder than usual.
May the odds be ever in your quest for the bargains you seek. Be kind in the process. Love and peace good people.
World Kindness Day is celebrated every year on November 13 to commemorate the power of kindness and the impact it has on others. Although not recognised by any international organisations like the United Nations, World Kindness Day is celebrated widely around the globe.
Kindness can go a long way to solving the problems we have as individuals and as people from all walks of life. Be kind to yourself, to others, and to our world.
Working for justice is an important act of love and peace. It requires a lot of us. Caring for the least fortunate is humanity in practice. There are some who are by society’s standards aren’t desirable but they need grace the most. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone is worthy of forgiveness.
I think compassion is in short supply and we need to generate more of it. My friends may we all be humble and extend arms that embrace those who struggle in life. May the creator be with us all as we live imperfect lives.
People are worthy of grace in abundance no matter who they are. Let’s hope we all learn from our mistakes and seek to be better and do better.
(I believe in what I just said in this post. However, there are some who need to be held accountable for their actions that have done great harm to others. They are worthy of forgiveness too but they also must ask for forgiveness for what they have done.)
It’s important to entertain the least of these in the world. We never know what their back story is. Love requires that of us. It also means that you have a chance to impact the lives of people who need it. The opportunity to impact the course of someone’s life is exciting.
Taking care of those who aren’t pretty or polished is a challenge and requires our better angels to do so. In a world where people need love, we have to be willing to be brave and bold.
So my friends learn to do good things that can change the direction of people who need love more than anything.
The thing about reflections is that they can show multiple things simultaneously. With that being said here are a few thoughts.
People are made up of a body and a soul linked together. It takes both to create a human being. Everyone is created in the image of their creator/higher power. It is important to understand that the body and soul are linked.
People need love and understanding. Without those important things people can feel like they don’t matter. Just think about how the world can change when we give a damn about our family, friends, neighbors and people we haven’t met yet.
Someone once said what the world needs now is love. In all it’s wonderful forms.
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.
