“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.” — Oprah Winfrey
We’ve come so far, yet we still have so far to go. Keep the dream alive!
If you grew up in Sunday School you may remember the Children’s song Be Careful Little Eyes What you See. Sometimes the simplest words are the most profound. In this time of anger, strife and turmoil we need to tell our little eyes be careful what they see, our hands be careful what they do, our mouths be careful what they say, our feet be careful where they go, our hearts be careful who they trust, our minds be careful what they think. In the computer age we also need to be careful of the websites we visit and the words we type.
But there is always Good News! There are good, decent, grounded people in the world trying to live with love and in the light. It’s time to come together. Not to form an army to violently take back what we think has been lost, but to stand together as testament to the light that is not overcome by darkness and is still present in the world.
Now let’s all sing that song!
“Patterning your life around other’s opinions is nothing more than slavery.” — Lawana Blackwell
People always seem to have opinions about how we should live our lives, don’t they? From serious issues such as health, to personal ones like political or religious belifs to the more trivial like how we dress or wear our hair (the photo today is my hair and people do have opinions) everyone seems to have an opinion. And in the computer age we seem compelled to express them.
Of course there is a time to listen and sometimes apply suggestions from others, but we have to resist becoming a copy of anyone else. Being someone other than who you were created to be is slavery. You don’t want to go there.
