We all know the world has become quite unsettled this year. SO many things in the world are just troubling.
It is every where, not just this country. We are all trying to do what we can to brighten the days for each other. That is why I am so thankful for the group we have here.
I read my horoscope in the paper this morning -
"You set out to lift people, not to lean on them. And yet, you wouldn't want to rob anyone of the chance to help you. You need it, and they give it - a perfect confluence of interests."
Not that I believe in horoscopes - but this is so true. All I have ever wanted to do in life is teach - and I try. It is not exactly what I had in mind while in college - but teaching is teaching.
The thing I have realized over the years is that I GET more than I can give.
I love the support and help and loving that everyone here shows.
We are all teachers. We are all learners. We are ONE! We may be all over the world, and we may have different beliefs, different religions, different habits, different ways - but we are more alike than we are different. Isn't that wonderful?
I have my faith and that gets me through each and every moment of each and every day. I am not ashamed of it. You may believe differently and that is OK for you.
We all do what we need.
We all need one another. No one on this earth can do this thing called life totally alone. I truly believe that the legacy that we all will leave - is how we helped, treated and supported other people.
Let us all be kind and giving. Let us all teach. Let us all be what we want to see from others. Let us all be positive and resourceful.
Let us all know that there is someone far greater in control.
This is it!!!!! Focus on what you can control - your thoughts and actions. The rest is faith!
Be compassionate to yourself and others. Use kind words. Do good deeds. Just keep moving forward.
Regardless of what happens today or tomorrow - life does go on.
MAKE THE BEST OF IT and PEACE my wonderful friends and sisters.
