Sometimes I have a day where I look out into the world and am saddened by what I see and hear. I know there’s so much good out there in this big world of ours, yet there are days that it seems to be overshadowed by the negative stuff. Today, as I count my blessings and am grateful for them all, I’m feeling a hurt in my heart at some of the things I’m seeing and of how it’s all making me feel.
I’m saddened by fathers or mothers that don’t pay their child support to help these babies that they brought into this world. Our children deserve the best that we can give them.
I’m saddened by a world divided by politics.
I’m saddened by children who don’t talk to their parents, who forget that their parents did the best that they could do for them, yet choose to focus only on what didn’t work out their way.
I’m saddened by people that abuse the ones they say that they love, whether it’s their children, friends, parents or significant others. Abuse of any kind breaks a heart and has a profound effect on the life of the one abused.
I’m saddened by a world that has forgotten the simplest of things: kindness, compassion, love and understanding.
I’m saddened by a world that is selfish and has forgotten the beauty of helping someone in need.
So many sad things surround us and I’ll admit that today is a day I’m feeling the effects of all those negative things, yet…
Love is simple.
Love is just love. It’s unconditional, non-judgemental and forgiving.
Love can change the life of another.
Love can change your perspective.
Love, my friends, can change the world.
And hopefully, one day, if we all choose love there will be no more sadness in the world.
And wouldn’t that be wonderful?
Think about it.
It’s a good thing.
Wishing you love and light,
