As I sat at my desk and reviewed my calendar, I immediately realized there are only less than two months left to what seemed like a year that would never end.
I don’t know about you, but all the noise, politically, socially, atmospherically, emotionally, mentally, physically that we have endured is more than any one person should ever bear. But as a nation WE HAVE!
I have been blown away, and I mean blown away by the rhetoric on social media that has been vile towards one another. I have been dismayed by folks who I thought were acquaintances that I thought would have a compassionate heart, share on social media rhetoric that proved otherwise. I have been saddened by the lack of compassion, empathy that we have demonstrated towards one another just because we have a difference of opinion. SO! With that being said, let’s do something different in the next two months.
I know I will!
I will post life and not death on my social media threads. I will meet friends for dinner instead of watching their lives play out on the small screen of my phone, iPad, and computers. I will focus less on what others are saying and doing and be about doing for myself, my family and friends. I will go out to see a concert, play, and walks. I will celebrate the simple wins that we have every day of our lives. I will show up when someone needs me the most. I will lend a listening ear with no judgment. I will laugh out loud. I will eat dessert. I will continue to exercise. I will pay attention to the sunset. I will pay attention to the morning whisper of birds chirping. I will cry when I want to. Dance and shout. We are still here, and each new day we get to start over again and make it better!
What are you going to do with the last two months?
We must stop expecting others to do for us what we should be doing for ourselves..live your life!
