and worst of all there are people creating this. We do not live in a perfect world, we live in a world that allows these things to happen. And it is beyond our comprehension. Those of us who can’t accept this bury their heads in the sand and say it isn’t happening because they are so far removed from it.
Others are so torn up that they campaign, speak out, get involved and won’t stop till they see the end of that evil.
I applaud them and pray that they succeed.
But there is something more important that people often overlook, and hardly ever makes it into the news.
There are people out there working hard to make this world better!
There is love, joy, peace and happiness in this work alongside the darkness.
When did he world get so dark that we forgot to look for the light?
Aren’t these the things that those people I applaud working for?
Archer: Because I cant save humanity, without holding on to the things that make me human. (Star Trek, Enterprise)
The things in this world such as Hope, Faith and love, are the things that make this life worth living.
I won’t give up. I won’t hide. I won’t act just because it will make me feel better to do so.
I will act out of love. I will do my best to make a difference in the lives of every person I meet because they deserve to be loved. And this world needs more light, not darkness
What gives me my strength?
What gives you your strength?
What gives you an unshakable foundation that will never fail?
I will not tell anyone what to believe, but I will tell you this, and very few can disagree (feel free to message me otherwise)
If you have something to believe in, that is unshakable, unbreakable, unconditional, and makes you understand why Joy can exist in this world, you will always know that this world is amazing, despite the hurt, suffering and pain within it.
This world isn’t perfect, neither am I.
Why not try to use what is good in it rather than glorify the bad?
So many people just think of work as a necessary evil or just something that needs to be done. I think that it’s possible that those people have the wrong job!
I love my job, and spending my time doing what I love most. Of course I can’t say that every day is happy happy joy joy, but I do my best to see all the good things. Ok, so sometimes life feels like: work, eat, sleep, wake up, work eat and sleep again, but why not embrace the work part? Think of the fact that there are people there you can connect with, and what you are contributing as a person to something larger than yourself!
I’m going to do my best to embrace every day at work and look forward to it. What are you going to do?
