Good morning everyone,
This is going to be a short post today. I'm rolling up on my short soap box for a moment, but please stick around.
I have really valued the experience I have had with the A to Z challenge. The one thing that stood out to me as I clicked on different blogs each day is how unique each blog was. That's because we are all very unique, with our own special talents, our own unique points of view---our own unique way of understanding this life we are all trying to live. We are all special, wonderful, amazing, individuals.
So here is my question. Why are we so hard on ourselves and others? Why do we try to tear down what isn't exactly like us? Why can't we appreciate, VALUE our own uniqueness? Maybe if we could see how wonderful we really are, accept it, and revel in the glory of who we are, then maybe we would be able to appreciate, VALUE the uniqueness in others.
My mother use to tell me that there is no way you can love others until you love yourself. She was an amazing woman. Listen to her! Take a good look at yourself and find something to love, something to VALUE.
Maybe the eleventh commandment should have read: Love yourself as I have loved you--- so you can love another.
My thought for the day. I'll get off my soap box now. Thanks so much for reading. I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to comment. Just click on the tiny pencil at the bottom of this post.
Hugs to all,
