Happy Monday, folks!
Here we are celebrating third week of March and also coming off the celebration of the first day of Spring!
And before I write more for you to read this week, I need to first say that my thoughts and prayers continue to be with those in Ukraine as they continue to fight for their Country in hopes of uniting in peace. I honestly can’t even begin to imagine having to fear for my life and safety every day, every minute, every second. I will continue to hope and pray that peace will be found.
Please continue to send prayers and love to all the people of Ukraine.
As I continue to wake up each day and roll out of bed…literally…roll out of bed, I continue to struggle with the images that I continue to see on my news feed.
Mostly, the pictures that I see of innocent civilians getting bombarded by violence, crying, and screaming for safety.
It hits me hard.
I said it for several weeks, but I honestly can’t imagine walking into my home and cuddling up in my blankets living in a fear of not knowing what tomorrow will bring.
I don’t think anyone would deny that the world is currently in turmoil.
It is evident now–more than ever–that we need to reset and come back to feelings and stories of positive energy, kindness, good vibes, and love.
Humanity in the world among us is struggling, but it will never become any better if we don’t learn how to be HUMAN with each other.
How can YOU be more human in the coming days ahead?
Instead of leading with hate, lead with love.
Instead of asking the question, “How are you” to someone in your life, ask instead the question of “What is a way that I can support you in life right now?”
Share a smile with a stranger.
Strike up a conversation with a stranger at the grocery store.
Open the door for others.
Pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru.
Donate to your favorite charity.
Offer to carry grocery bags for someone to their car.
Share appreciation with the workers around you who keep things moving.
Show sensitivity and empathy when engaging in conversation.
Listen to others.
Let somebody through in traffic.
Keep the elderly company.
Say please and thank you.
Admit when you’re wrong.
Celebrate the wins of others.
Plant a tree or some other form of greenery.
Honestly, the possibilities are endless.
Our world is struggling.
Our world is falling.
And we need to be there to catch it.
Be human with each other, please.
It doesn’t take much, but it effects will last a lifetime.
Sprinkle sunshine always,
