Your smile is what is needed. A smile invites happiness and cheer and is essential to energize others as well as yourself.Perfect Liberty 2022.3
Yesterday a friend called who had just been told one of his/her parental units had covid. Symptoms were mild, never-the-less it was confirmed it was covid. The parent had both vaccines and the booster, never-the-less it was concerning. In PL. we try to accept everything that happens to us and around us, as a way to reinforce a positive way of creatively dealing with opportunities that come our way.
In the last couple of years we have been “reacting” to the word “covid” and any and all other references to this “disease” in our atmosphere. It isn’t always easy to be and stay positive.. but it is in being positive and appreciative that we will make changes that will benefit all of mankind.
Personally, I have learned to come to terms with negativity that has shadowed my world for some time. Time has opened my eyes to the knowledge that there are circumstances that are beyond my control or my ability to “fix”. Any change that is going to happen has to begin with “me” and my behaviour.
Love is a word that is brandied around and used for all kinds of reasons, people, places and things. is it a verb or a noun??? An emotion? a feeling? how many times in a day do you use the word, and how many times while using the word are you filled with passion, contentment, pleasure, joy and happiness.
How many of us live in a world filled with love – yet feel we are in a vacuum, or are totally alone even if we are in a room full of people.
When I read today’s calendar ” your smile is what’s needed”….. yes, I agree, but anyone can smile, you can mechanically make your face smile. what I want to know is do you feel it.. When you smile are you happy.
Covid is a word. It has history, it has meaning, but it is a word. If we don’t want to be cold when we go out in the Canadian winter, we wear appropriate clothes… If its raining and we don’t want to get wet, we bring along an umbrella. If my mate is hungry and wants to eat, it doesn’t mean that I’m hungry and need to eat. We are all individuals and unique in our needs/wants etc. It is important to recognize and realize that the same applies to how we respond to words that are used.
