Our society is not made for people to live comfortably alone (especially following the choices made by government after the pandemic began), however it was never intended to be any different.
Our culture was always intended to be that of community and support. “We The People” speaks to a “people” or “society” that comes together and unites. As a single mother I had the pleasure of witnessing this lately.
Yesterday marked a day full of physical, mental, and emotional highs. When life (or whatever demonic ball of flames) comes barreling at you and you have no option but to fight, block, or pause to plan your way around it, don’t think you’re alone.
We live in a world that notices things around us (unless you surround yourself with individuals that are too busy looking at their selfies to see outside of what they’re doing lol). I had the honor of witnessing this by meeting, speaking with, and working along side some of the most inviting people around and that reminded me of others I’ve had seasons with throughout my life.
When we take a moment to notice the people and their true nature, it can make the greatest impact on how you proceed with your new/future days. I was taught to always look for the blessings/silver lining and to be grateful for the things we have (as well as the progress we’ve made towards what the ultimate goal is). Having this embedded in my core has helped continue to make life happier and more manageable (even when it looks like it should be falling apart). I encourage anyone who has grown up in an environment or a timeframe that has pushed Hope, Faith, and Unconditional Love out of your daily life to evaluate or assess how you can incorporate it in (or back in if it had been lost for a time). Just be aware that it is contagious and will spread around you….therefore making others enjoy life with you as well (unless they choose to fall out of your life to the dark side). *little Star Wars humor for the geeks like me 😊
As we push through another day, I would like to say….don’t just Live, Laugh, and Love, also Play 🤣
