“When they go low. We go high.” Former First Lady Michelle Obama
First of all, I want to wish you all happy, healthy and adventurous new year. May this year find you feeling less stress and I hope we can all put down those electronic devices and go outside and hug a tree or look up at that big yellow ball in the sky. It’s the sun and she would like to share a little D3 with us all. Not all of us can carry off the Walking Dead look.
I have to be honest. 2017 and all that went on got me off course. I feel like i am have been torn apart by the going ons in this county, in this world. Some days I felt like I wanted to stay under the covers and let someone battle the demons in the world.
And that is so not me.
But I felt powerless and gave into it. Some days I would be all about the peace and love and then a minute later I would be yelling and my cats would just turn up the cartoon channel. Their human was driving them nuts also.
I started Little Love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution about 18 months ago. Right after the Orlando Night Club massacre. I knew I had to do something besides crying and worrying about my family and friends. I took the call to action seriously and with some dynamic members of the Peaceful Revolution, we distributed business size cards all over the world. My art and my words (or I dipped into some wordsmiths’ words to convey my thoughts) that covered the cards were left in public places where people could find them and know that they were not alone.
I do believe that when you are ready, what you are supposed to do shows up. That is how I feel about my passion to bring a little more peace and love to the world.
But I let myself get scared and frustrated by the world.
But no more!
I apologize if I let anyone down with moving away from my cause. I think I felt I needed to fight against all of the” isms” that are going on in this country.
But I realize now that it was not what I am supposed to be doing. I want to be an instrument of peace and love with a slice of sarcasm thrown in so I feel normal (whatever normal means).
I hope you will join me or join me again and let’s cover the world with messages of hope, love, empathy and peace.
Let our voices be powerful. Let the small Little Love letters: A Peaceful Revolution cards work their little miracles whenever someone finds a card.
I truly believe that this is how we make changes – not thru threats, violence or becoming blind and deaf to those who don’t agree with us.
