Why can’t we all just get along and understand each other on the common ground that being human is really freakin difficult sometimes? No one really knows what they’re doing. We’re all just trying to survive and not let our traumas swallow us whole. Once again, I find myself getting caught up in the busyness of business, the drama of distractions, and the shallowness of society. It’s all too easy to forget what I had been working towards in my heart and to start leading with my head again. Maybe that’s just what goes along with being an air dominant, Type A type of person. But maybe there are others who will understand this as well. To know something and to feel that knowledge with your being are not necessarily the same thing. “Stop war. Stop hate. Stop finding differences instead of commonalities.” It’s so easy to say but can be difficult to live that way when one is always on the move. This is a reminder to myself (and whoever else might benefit) to slow down, stop for a moment, and get back to the intrinsic truth that we are all the same. We all want to be loved, accepted, given a hand in times of need. I wish that I will stop allowing myself to fall back into negative behavioral patterns and remember that. Here’s to living with an open heart more regularly until it becomes every day practice.
