Let’s take on the perspective that we are powerful. Not in the sense that we can control or change anyone/anything: but in the sense that no one/nothing can control or change us unless we let them/it.
I’m talking about our fundamental, spiritual rights as human beings. We are creatures of love: it’s in our nature to be happy, and to be kind. True, we will all know great sadness, but it’s temporary. The only real, lasting thing is love. As beings of love we are at our best when we connect to happiness and kindness. When we can’t find happiness, at least we can find peace. Peace is available whether we are going through a painful loss or a joyful life event. Peace is always available. People might try and take your peace, but it can only work if you let it happen. Do whatever it takes to find your peace.
Don’t let anything anyone says or does take away your happiness, and your kindness. Yes, we will all have dark days, but remember: the sun will always shine again. May we all practice happiness, and kindness.
