There is much goodness in the world,
and I’ve been bathed in it this weekend.
Something I’ve needed.
Life may be brutal and cruel sometimes; it can be hard,
but we dictate the lens through which we choose to see.
We decide where we put our energies,
the relationships we build,
the people we elevate,
the problems we choose to solve,
the ears we choose to lend,
the people we choose to bless,
the actions we choose to take,
the thoughts we allow to become things,
the creations we culminate.
We choose to act or to not.
To nurture or to neglect.
Everything is in our court to do something with.
The positive that we seed into the world.
Or the not.
Even the things we cannot control – we have the freedom,
the choice, and the responsibility of how to handle them.
A free and creative life is not an easy one
but never was such promised.
We were given a variety of tools
and ways to create our reality.
And then given the free will
to go forth and create.
I don’t know what I’m doing
any more than the next person,
but I’m still learning and trying.
I have an ideal I hold in my heart,
and a Creator whom I believe teaches
and guides me.
I still believe that Light
overcomes the Darkness
and that There Is Only Love.
And I appreciate everyone around me
who helps reflect these gifts to me
and fills my cup.
Thank you, friends.
