As you probably have figured out by now, I think a lot...I am constantly in a state of thought it seems. Since late December 2019 when I first heard about covid my radar has been on overdrive. I watch, I listen, I think....like everyone else I have my opinions but don’t freely share...I get upset if I read certain in things, there’s much about people I just simply don’t understand...I always look at both sides of a coin, read/listen to all sides of an argument and draw my own conclusions...sometimes I agree with one side or the other and sometimes I agree with none...I read something this morning that just absolutely floored me...I couldn’t believe I was actually reading it...so of course that got my mind to going...there’s so many sides to this whole covid-19 thing...mask/no mask, vaccine/no vaccine, dems/repubs...it’s just crazy...so my thinking was...what if we all just quit arguing and realized that this is exactly how things are suppost be at this time...what if we just accepted this is the world we live in right now and we all just decided to do what needed done to help each other...what if instead of arguing with one another we put our differences aside and worked to find common ground...if we would all work as hard at finding common ground as we do finding our differences things could be far different...I believe in all situations there’s a lot of gray area...nothing is black and white...this virus is no different...there’s a lot of gray area! A LOT! Maybe we were all put here, in this time, in this place for a purpose...what is your purpose? To bring unity or cause division? You can bring unity but still hold different beliefs! We are all going through this for a reason...many lessons to be learned...this really is just a season...at some point it will end...at the end how do you want to be remembered? A safe place? A place of divide? Causing division or working towards unity? You hold the all the cards. What you believe doesn’t really matter because the truth is there is a power much higher than any of us that has total control! Let that power do what needs done! That power(God) has the ultimate say! I choose to believe that we are meant to be a light in the darkness...light brings happiness, unity, healing, words of kindness...darkness brings the opposite ...division, hate, sickness, meanness...we are to be salt and LIGHT!...next time someone disagrees with you, bless them...smile and say I’ll truly consider your point of view. Wish them health and happiness and be on your way. No need to argue. It serves no good purpose. You will never change a mind that is closed, I spent so much time trying...in the end it was truly time and energy wasted. Speaking my mind once was enough...if someone doesn’t understand the first time, they won’t understand the second or third. They won’t understand until they choose to do so. But the best part is, you can still love them, be kind to them and get along. We have to understand we all have the right to an opinion...but opinion doesn’t equal facts...opinion is just merely a collection of ideas and a strong personal belief about something. That’s it! It’s not fact! The next time you want to engage someone in a debate ask what your goal is? What is your end game? Then, proceed accordingly!
Above all else, prepare...prepare your heart, your mind and your home!
Until next time...
Love & Light
