I was hoping to post "Discovering Love Part II" today but need to postpone, ironically because I was listening to KUOW on my way home from dropping off my son at school. I found myself in tears listening to a conversation with a senator talking about how nothing will change following another school massacre in Broward County. Of course solutions are complicated but I as I pulled up to my home I kept thinking LOVE AND CONNECTION are not complication and can lead to the change we MUST see in this world.
This is what was running through my mind...
If you are feeling powerless. Start by spreading more love every day. Not just w/ your family. Not just in your inner circle of friends. Not just in your school community. Spread it with the people where you buy groceries. Spread it when you are in a neighborhood other than your own. Spread it with a smile. A kind comment. A honest thought. It does not have to be big grand gestures. It is free. It is not time consuming. You don't know how it will impact and cannot control the outcome...just little steps outside your normal to connect with others every day. You will feel better and the wave of love will build into a tsunami of unity that then can make important, real change in our country.
If you want to do more...just call me. I have LOTS of ways to connect and spread love!!
