There is a very good reason why you should never ever HATE someone. I include, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, animal abusers. When you hate someone, that’s a very powerful emotion to have. While I don’t blame the victims for hating their perpetrators, and THEY should do so. For us to hate the perpetrators, take’s away from the love and energy you should give the victim INSTEAD.
Now, I am not saying on ANY level to love a perpetrator, but spend YOUR love on the victims instead. Don’t hate the perpetrator, LOVE the victim instead. Also hate is such a wasteful emotion. What’s that saying…
I’m just letting you know that if you walk in and I see you with a t-shirt saying “If you don’t love it, leave it” I am probably going to instantly dislike you. As I did when a student walked in and was wearing a t-shirt with that saying, with the Australian flag all over it. I have never understood that mind set.
It is absolutely possible to love something or someone and realise they have imperfections. It is possible to love something or someone and want better for them. I love Australia, but it’s definitely (like a lot of countries lately) got flaws. If you don’t like people saying “We can do better” than you leave.
If your family, friends and/or relationships are not perfect, do you just walk away? Of course not, you help them. It’s a ridiculous notion that we all can’t improve in some way…Except for animals, they are pretty perfect!
When the Westboro Baptist Church a known hate group protested a transgender child at Brookwood Elementary in Leawood, KS Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the response to this abhorrent act on of all days 9/11, became the real news. The entire town patriotically and empathetically rallied in the children’s defense truly honoring the day. Parents, citizens, and teachers alike spoke up and showed up with unconditional love and acceptance for every child.
This is going to seem like a weird post for a magical Monday post, especially when it may not seem so “Magical” of a post.
I think it’s kind of sweet when Trump supporters genuinely believe that Trump loves his country. I don’t though, but only for one reason. This is going to sound mean and I genuinely don’t mean to sound that way. I just don’t think Trump knows how to Love.
Too me this was proven with one comment:
Then I found out recently he called his other daughter Tiffany “fat”. What kind of father says that about their own daughter? I don’t care if it’s true or not. A girls first introduction to be treating well, is her father. If there’s no father, then a father figure.
Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist? I would say that I’m an optimist, but these last couple of years have slowly been testing me.
Can War ever be just? I think that sometimes it can be, but I don’t think it is if you just want a “War”. I honestly think Trump would love it if there was a War that he started. You take a look at WWI and WWII, they always start over really dumb reasons, but they needed to be fought. The Allies couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. Well I say that and then remember how long it took for America to join in the Wars…Hmmm….
Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them? I try to do what I can really. There’s obviously only certain things I can do and can only go so far.
Are you health conscious? At the moment I definitely am! I have high cholesterol and since the rest of my family have it too. My doctor wants me to change my lifestyle for the next couple of months and see if I can lower it that way.
Gratitude, Thankfulness, Wonder, Awe and Joy!
This is the space where you share, if you’d like to, something that falls into those categories.
I don’t know how to answer that this week. It feels rude of me to say, but a lot of people were sick at work this week, but that has meant that I got work. Of course it’s been all the nice people, who I actually working with too though, but I think they get it.
I have always felt like the below quote, should have stopped after. “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love”.
The best thing I think, I personally have felt with life, is to truly learn how to love. Love everything, love yourself, love the planet, love your soul, love what you have in your life at every moment. Then to be loved in return (truly loved) is just the cherry on the pie…
