Revisiting an important post originally written December 5th 2013.
When I struggle with something, the reason I share it is not to get attention or to just be neurotic ( oh, though rest assured it is true), but it’s because I don’t want to just be an “image” of strength or have a self-crafted persona that is always cheery.
I share it because I have a very precious gift of being able to bounce back and shake it off, to keep moving forward despite hurdles. I like to be able to remind each other that we all have this ability but we often forget about it. If you have been a victim of trauma, or loss (isn’t that pretty much almost everyone?) remember it is in the past, there is no need to move forward with the voice of a victim or carry that in the future. All we can do is take action, thoughts will not change a thing if we don’t set them into motion.
I am a believer in community and the power of influence that we have on one another. That influence can easily go in a positive or negative direction.
We are here together in this world, right now, amazingly. Some of us have illness, financial devastation, family members who suffer or whatever other curve balls that come up for humans.
Let’s all work together to help each other out, show kindness and forgiveness of ourselves and one another. WE CAN make this would, OUR world a better place.
We shouldn’t waste a single day. And if we do, too bad. That is forgivable. Shake it off and keep on keepin’ on.
