I take comfort in the fact that no matter what happens in life, the sun will set and rise again.
We have a beautiful example everyday of what it means to be resilient. And resilience with grace is an example of the good fight. Maybe all of this sounds superfluous, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately (I know, a dangerous occupation).
I often wander at Comanche Lookout Park as the sun is setting, allowing good vibes to accompany me and thinking about the purpose of things. I’ve thought a lot about my purpose, as a daughter, sister, nurse, leader, wanderer, enthusiast…but it all comes down to this: even when you’ve had a rough go, and things haven’t necessarily gone your way, your purpose is not to dwell in the negative vibes. I was telling my family the other day, being upset and unhappy doesn’t suit me, not when there are so many beautiful things to be happy about.
My mother said something quite profound over the phone last week. She said that, “You might not always “feel” love for this world, but the act of love is not in feeling. It’s the conscious decision everyday to wake up, take a look around at the spectacular present, and decide of love.”
My purpose is not to remain stagnant in any state of gloom or despair (even if the times demand it, just open a newspaper) but, in a grand attempt to provide as much healing as my soul can purvey, to love the world and all that is in it, to reach into the darkness unafraid, and to always look forward. Your vibe attracts your tribe, so make it a good one, eh? Now enough of this hippy mumbo jumbo nonsense….namaste, good reader. Like I said above….good vibes, my friends. Happy Thursday!
