Choosing Kindness and Compassion in Tumultuous Times
Days of Autumn quickly pass by, and the nip of the holidays of thanks and cheers is in the air. Busy schedules and time seemingly flying by, or is it just life? The world of changes is changing fast and not so much what I wish to see. Wars and anger… or time for us all to stand up for what we do want. What we believe in, like Free speech, respect, kindness, and understanding our uniqueness, adds to this incredible world. We are all equal in the grand scheme of things. Here to learn those very things. I am not sure why it is so difficult to learn this lesson.
Each person we meet is a reflection of us. So why not heal that part of us so wounded deep instead of harming the other? That is what the season of Scorpio is about—the time of healing, mending, and waking up to the beauty and grace within us and giving thanks for that healing, mending, and waking up. For the people who helped us along the way. Stress is resisting, and if you resist it, it will persist. Breathe deeply and shake it all off, dear people.
And with saying that, this sidenote: Thank you, Taylor Swift, for your incredible talent and for distracting the world with your brilliance, kindness, beauty, and Grace. You show that women can do it and do it beautifully—blessings to you and yours. I appreciate you for all you be and do.
Most days, I say or write what I am grateful for. Each breath, for good health, physically and mentally, the kindness in my life, friends, and family, and the good, the bad, and the ugly, I created in some way in my life for the lessons. Accept and allow. Thank you.
It is funny to me, though it is who and what I love, to learn, to be curious, and to ask questions with my observation. I am taking classes in tech at the age of 60 and don’t see myself stopping this learning. It is like retiring; I don’t see myself doing that…just another adventure. Why get re-tired? Does that make sense?
Through this reflection of self and seeing the world in this state, I wonder why I am here at this amazing time. What do I reflect on this Earth? Ask yourself where you are still angry, upset, or wounded. Forgive yourself and those around you on this week of thanks. Life is more than the great sales on Black Friday or even before. It is more than the shopping. It is that kindness, beauty, and Grace. Be it, share it, and thank you for reading my moment of observation and rambling.
