I was strolling through my feed this evening and saw a quote around the lines of
“The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of all kinds.” Quoted by Dalai Lama
The sad part is, more people thrive on drama, strife, and sabotage than anything else. In a world crumbling every day, how can we sit back and allow so many terrible things to go on around us. People are targeting each other due to personal vendettas. People say horrible things about others on social media, not realizing they are making themselves look untactful. People holding others back because they’d rather shine brighter than everyone else. It’s shameful that in the world we live in today, it is a norm to do these types of things, and act in such a way. It makes me think of children. When someone doesn’t get what they want, they then throw a tantrum and enact revenge. Is this right?
I am not mentioning this due to any personal experiences. I am merely observing a community around me act in such a manner that horribly discourages me from wanting to be a part of it.
Is this behavior what we want our future generations to learn? Are we ok with watching our world fall apart every day?
You see, there is something beautiful in the way a tree turns over a new leaf. The bright vibrancy full of promise, and life give out hope for another fruitful year.
Dad used to say, “There is more to life, then what’s meets the eye.”
Guess what… there is. In my newest site page, I posted some beautiful and heartwarming videos about the world, and about kind deeds. If you’d like to see them please click here. They are endearing.
No. I do not think it is OK to especially as a leader to target a local business because you think they do not support a specific cause. Lately I have been seeing this happen more and more. A town that has an abundance of tourism, who would want to visit knowing that our leaders led by gaining fear, not respect? It’s more than respect.
“A true leader leads by example.” Do you know what that means? It means if you want people to do the right things, do them yourself. Two wrongs do not make a right. You rise above, show true integrity by being a leader, not stooping to anyone’s level.
I suppose the point I’m trying to make here is, that when do we as human beings finally step in to make a difference. Understand that without uniting, we have nothing. Without working together, we will all suffer. Without seeing, and greeting with a humbled mind, we will all drift into the forgotten because we will become extinct ourselves. How many of you, my readers are with me on this movement? Is it OK to allow what was once a beautiful heritage, foundation, tradition, or cultures get torn to pieces because “The new kid in town” moved there for the beauty but suddenly doesn’t like it?
Is it OK for others to hold you back because you seem like a threat?
Is it right to tear at one another because something didn’t go your way?
What is right?
A better, newer way?
Are we doomed to repeat history? It was once said that until the lesson is learned you are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
Hence, maybe the way we treat others is a key factor in this huge game we call life. I am going to leave you today with this thought to ponder.
“We get in return what we put out. The more focused we are on the negative that is what we receive. Focus on the positive, and that is what we’ll receive.”
