Happy Monday everyone!
I write this post through water filled eyes. I am not crying because I am sad, in fact I am crying for just the opposite. With everything that has happened the past few days the entire world is up in arms. It seems as if everywhere I turn hatred is being spread so thickly it seems as if it will never clean up. Tonight I as was scrolling through my Fb feed I came across a beautiful video about a man and his wife. He was telling the nurse how much he loved his wife and that they had been together for 70 years. He went on to talk about how he didn't want to waste time with his heart condition, his wife was in stage one of Alzheimers and he wanted to spend every moment he could with her. He said that he was incredibly grateful to have this woman in his life and he needed to be there for her while she slowly gave way to the disease. Can we say oceans pouring from my eyes? Goodness gracious.
This was immediately followed by yet another amazing video. Oh my heart! The next one I watched was a 6min clip filled with all the ways humanity has shown love. Kids being kind to those less fortunate, adults helping one another, sacrifices and paying it forward. By the end of these two videos I just let my tears fall down my cheeks. It showed me that there are amazingly kind acts people do every second of the day. When we focus on all the bad things people do it is as if we put blinders on our hearts. Good is out there, love is out there. We must all do our part to help spread more love.
I know it's hard. I completely understand how easy it can be pointing out every little thing that went wrong in one day. I completely empathize with wanting to place blame and point the finger. I live and work in one of the most judgmental and entitled city atmospheres. Well for a few more months any way. But we mustn't let the misery of others drag us down. I know it can be hard in the moment, but try at some point to see things from the other person's view. Maybe it's the way they were brought up, maybe they hate their lives and just don't care anymore, and maybe they sadly are just shallow people. I promise you they aren't everyone.
For the next few days I am going to take into account every time someone pays it forward, compliments me, or I witness an act of love. I want to start focusing on the good in people again. I want to show others that love is a powerful force. If we all just show a little bit of love towards others whole new doors open up.
Love and hugs everyone!
P.s. Hate is easy, veto takes courage. Are you brave enough?
