“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!
