I am a progressive thinker, very open-minded and I seek answres to the Universe. I dream of a better society and it saddens me to witness the needless acts of so many around me. The most important things in this world, ARE NOT THINGS!! People matter, and we, as a society have forgotten to just be kind, compassionate, friendly, caring, to look out for each other. We were never meanto to go through life alone, (and I do not necessarily mean you have to be in a seclusive relationship with someone...) I am more referring to the many relationships we should nurture and cherish, for we are all connected and your fate is tied into my own....we are brothers and sisters, and there is only ONE LOVE....
It's funny, I went through a very rough spell not too long ago, (and I am still coming out from it), and I see others struggling....yet some that have it the hardest are the people with more heart and soul. They still reach out to anyone in their path....and than I know others whom have so much and fail to be grateful for what they have, only focusing on what they do not have. They are always griping, and complaining, and endlessly cast themselves in the role of the victim, as if the whole world is out to get them, thus it's just not possible for them to lend you a helping hand.... and is it only me that feels the disgust of this mentality?
It is only when I am giving back to those around me, serving, or doing something for someone else that I truly find redemption and forgivesness in myself for the mistakes I have made. I stopped feeling sorry for myself and whining "why me?' Instead, I asked, "ok, what do I need to learn and gain from this experience so as to move forward....", that I actually did begin to move forward.
It's easy to not criticize and rationalize and gripe about the shortcomings, flaws and mistakes of others, to be selfish and uninterested....but it's not cool and in the end you are less for not taking the time to connect to someone in your path.
People will hurt you. They will disappoint you....forgive them. Don't stop caring, or getting involved, because than your the one giving up and it's always a struggle, and we are all in this together....so take some time to do something for someone you know in need, even the smallest of getsures can change another person's world in unimaginable ways.... smile at strangers, say hello....open the door for someone while out running errands, help an older citizens with taking their groceries to their home, bake some cookies and introduce yourself to the neighbor you have no clue what their name is and they have lived there for two years, donate clothes to goodwill, buy a homeless person some sandwhiches and a soda, let someone with less items go in front of you in line, just do something, break out of your comfort zone and love your suffering brothers and sisters out here on the streets.
And than maybe we could all just learn to get along and groove~~~~
PEACE! COEXIST!!! BELIVE! LOVE! IMAGINE!
