There’s been so much pain and suffering this year. I want to believe that it’s all just a dream. That I’ll walk up tomorrow and none of the traumatic events and passings really took place and that my Facebook feed is truly filled with nothing but puppy dog, kittens and baby pictures. Unfortunately living in denial only works for so long before the truth stares you in the face pretty hard.
I woke up this morning and one of my favorite songs in the world came on, Michael Jackson Man in the Mirror was on. This song has always moved me but for some reason (you pick) this particular morning it moved me to tears. So I decided to take a good hard look at the woman in the mirror and make sure that I’m doing my part.
Change starts with me, with you, with each one of us. If you want to make the world a better place, then take a look at yourself and make a change. Thank you MJ.
While I’ve always considered myself a generally happy person and quite the warrior there are times when I get down on myself and I have my moments of self-doubt and have a pity party or two. I forget who I am and where I have been, and most of all – I forget to give thanks and be in gratitude. So I’ve decided to take a 30 day oath to live in a world of gratitude.
Will you join me?
