I just returned from a wedding in the city. It was a smash! It was a fun, lively, one-of-a-kind wedding celebration week, weekend, day, moment, hour, and minute filled with transforming and evolving [constantly breathing] breaths.
Me in the ‘big city’ is quite da hoot. Especially, that I haven’t walked in a true big city for a couple of years. I’ve been to many. I’ve frequented some. I’ve walked through them on and off for most of my life. I have never been a city girl. I’ve always felt most comfortable near a small town beach and more comfortable in the country (suburbs). And, every city I have ever been to has always taken a hold of a piece of my heart and expanded it. I think just out of the sheer connection of constant activity and bustle.
Going for a walk, alone, to take in the sights and shop for an outfit, and interact with people of all calibers, beliefs, different stories, same stories but with different reactions, was very invigorating for me.
I did, however, in my own belief, see many of my fellow human beings so embedded in what they were doing; needed to do; were thinking about doing that I did feel the disconnect and divided world that is still very current and alive.
It is a currency of individualized living. I have lived this way. I know this way. I now want more.
While it is still my hope and wish for each of us to live as our own natural, powerful, empowering and ‘better one’s self’ way, I also want us to be doing this together.
Tall order; perhaps. Can it happen… I don’t know. Do I want it to… A resounding YES.
The way it can happen is for us all to be aware, involved, caring and open from the depth of ourselves to the outer edges as far as one can reach.
It starts with me. It starts with you. It starts with her; with him, with them, with us.
I can only live what I know to be true from my own natural, powerful, empowered to better my life’s state.
You can only live what you know to be true from your own natural, powerful, empowered to better your life’s state.
We must accept where we are at this moment in time. We must bring our truest, most loving of one’s self to each situation we encounter.
We must be aware, open, allow and support as many individuals that is within our power to do so. If we have connected this way with one other person today; as our truest, most loving self, it is a good day. It is a great start.
Let us connect through love and compassion and the belief and understanding that we all just want to be loved, cared for, cared about and know that we matter.
As each one of us feels this, knows this, believes that this is true with who we are, we win. I want to win.
May you want to win and make it so…
