I cannot begin to tell you how much I’ve missed blogging. How much I’ve missed my checking in with you guys and how much I’ve just missed my regular ho-hum kind of life before all the shite hit.
It hit and it did in a big way. Those of you who have followed me, emailed me and know what’s been going on in my world know what I mean. Those of you who I follow yet I’ve not commented on your blogs in a while, my apologies. I swear it’ll be different in the coming weeks. Something’s gotta give.
So, I’ll not lament over what’s been going on. The reason why I’ve not posted regularly is because I don’t want to post when I’m feeling so down that I’ll bring someone else down. That’s not how I roll. I believe in the good, the positive. Until I’m that, I don’t see a reason to put my energy out there, if that makes sense.
I’m beginning to feel a good kind of energy again. I’ve read a few blogs, commented on a few here and there when I’ve had the chance to do so. I was in the middle of a crisis when I heard about that horrible thing that happened last week.
I’ve read about the anger of those who write about some ignorant group who choose to do something during the aftermath of that. I don’t know if they did or didn’t, but here’s what I think about that.
There is love and there is hate. Both of those emotions carry so much weight. So much influence. So much passion. Love is really the only thing that matters and gets us through any kind of tragedy.
Love begats love. Hate begats hate. I believe if you give energy to either, it grows, magnifies. The absolute worst you can do to any thing that you want to die, stop, go away is apathy, indifference. Maybe it’s the pacifist in me but I simply do not understand why we need to focus on a small section of humanity that chooses to show hatred. Their misguided souls feed on attention, anger and all those negative emotions that take so much of our energy.
I’m an activist on giving voice, love and light to those who deserve it. I am indifferent to those who do not. I get angry, as do we all — it’s the letting go of it that frees us.
If you ignore something, don’t give it life, attention or energy, it dies, dissipates. This may seem simplistic to some, but it’s how I believe as one human/soul taking up some energy on the big beautiful world we’re in.
A man (woman) is but the product of his/her thoughts. What he thinks, he/she becomes. — Mahatma Gandhi.
I will give all my love, light and energy to the people who need it the most. Not the ones who have upset the love in the world. Not the ones who choose to spew hatred and negativity. That in itself — my indifference to that ignorance — is a kind of protest. I seriously believe those who are filled with animosity are already in their own kind of hell.
With that and with all I’ve been through, I’m asking all of you who still happen by my post to put all your energy into the goodness that is in our world. In what’s around you. Give your energy to those who need some good loving thoughts — those who have suffered an unimaginable tragedy who wont’ find any solace anytime soon.
Hate and love take a whole lotta of energy. I’m giving my energy to the goodness — to those who need it. Trust me on this: In the end, love is all that matters. That’s it.
Those who seek their own misguided agenda are already messed up with hate. They don’t need any from anyone else, Don’t feed it. Be indifferent and let it die. It will.
There is good in the world. In the end, good always wins, always triumphs.
With that, I’m going to end this post and I hope to check in with you on Christmas Eve.
Love you much and listen below…this is one of my Father’s favorite songs and mine too, so good it’ll probably show up again on my Night Before Christmas post if I’m able to do that.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy, joyous, love-filled whatever you believe (or don’t) — because as long as it stems from a good place, it is powerful, good and wondrous.
