I can’t take more of this chaos, this insanity, this week , this year . . .
I refuse to accept that human beings have nothing more to offer each other than clinging to stupidity in the name of the perception of freedom, and allowing a minority ignore the will of the majority who just want to feel safe from the brutality of those who see violence as the answer to everything.
I refuse to believe that we cannot find our way past fear and the perception of difference to live in a world full of peace, kindness, and love.
I can’t continue to gather the pain and anger that fills this world, and feel so helpless. I can’t watch as media agencies care more about being first than about reporting news properly.
I can’t take any more.
It’s time to make change . . . inside myself, in society, in this world.
I don’t like walking around feeling angry, sad, frustrated, tired, and hopeless. But, I realize, that I’m the only one who can change that for myself, and maybe making the internal changes will somehow create chain reaction that will grow into others.
Today is the day that I am going to close my eyes and ears to all the negativity in the world, and focus on happiness.
This doesn’t mean I will stop caring, but that I simply cannot take anymore in. The only way I’m ever going to make a difference. The only way we are ever going to make change, is for each and every individual to say “Enough! This insanity has gone on for too long! We want a better life for everyone!” And then they have to start . . . with themselves.
“Your personal contentment is more than a feel-good story. New research shows it can have a profound effect on your health. . . It’s not too late to pursue your own happiness today.” (Ronald Siegel “Why You Need to Pursue Happiness”
Today I choose to pursue happiness and love, because if I don’t I think I’m going to lose myself into a darkness m which I’ll never escape.
Today I choose pursue happiness because I cannot accept that humans cannot rise above the darkness, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Today I choose to pursue happiness and hope.
Does anyone want to join me? If we do, maybe we can change the world, one step at a time.
UPDATE (a few moments later): I’m going to learn from the wisdom of the incredible “word hermit” Andra Watkins . . . visit her post to find out more.
