“There’s only so much space inside a person, so you have to be careful what you let fill you up. Anger, bitterness and despair will crowd in if you let them, but so will mercy, forgiveness, and joy….if you make the room and invite them in. Sometimes you have to work extra hard to make the room.”
Good Monday Morning! Having a big mug of Tazo Organic Earl Grey Noir. Sounds very mysterious. But it tastes lovely!
Yesterday was my thinking day. Taking stock if you will. And one thing kept popping into my brain. Are you living what you believe? And like most of the country I said, no. We have been gradually conditioned to gloss over any bad behavior, any lie, any responsibility for our actions and when I protest I hear a lot of Who Cares?
I do. I care. I am sick of non-reality reality shows. I am sick of people behaving badly and being rewarded for it. I expect respect and common decency. The entire political scene has become a really bad Honey Boo Boo episode. As a friend once said, the world needs an enema. I am all for people having guns. I am not for just passing them out like Halloween candy. Make some guidelines. Stop sending your thoughts and prayers and vote. Make noise. Our children shouldn’t have to be afraid to go to school or to the mall.
I for one am tired of looking the other way while people aren’t held accountable for their actions. The bar is so low now and that is not acceptable. Get yourself registered to vote and use our voice to demand change. Because if you believe it you have to live it, and I for one am starting that today.
