Small is Beautiful
I have flown from my nest temporarily...I am guest posting on this lovely blog today. We are talking about passion...go have a look!
But I do want to write a little bit about my current thoughts, and the direction I want to take on this blog of mine...
I have been thinking about the world we live in, how chaotic things seem to be, how destructive we humans can be to ourselves, to others and to our fragile and precious environment ... Maybe I am oversensitive, but I can feel the weight of it on my soul. And I've been thinking about what I can do to counter it, because I am well aware that what I focus on expands.
Let me just say that I am also well aware that there are many many kind and loving and compassionate people all over our beautiful globe who are making things better each and every day. Amazing things happen every day. But why do we hear so much more of the negative? Why is the news so over-saturated with stories of doom and gloom? It gets me down sometimes, you know?
I know that I can't change the world no matter how many lightbulbs I turn off, no matter how many containers I recycle, no matter how frustrated and down-right devastated I feel with the human race and its capacity for cruelty. But, I do have the ability to change my mindset and put my focus on all that is positive and nurturing. And I can share it with others, so that we all feel a little less of that negative weight on our shoulders.
For the month of May, I want to share a daily project with you. Each day, I will post one beautiful thing. One photograph, one movie, perhaps a few words, some days maybe no words...One thing that reflects on what is good and true and beautiful to me, in hopes that it will carry itself forward and fill you up with goodness. I want to create a ripple effect. And I invite you to share with me what brings you peace within the crazy. What makes you happy? What allows you to tune out the negative and absorb the beauty?
My first post will be May 1st.
Perhaps it will be a month long project, but it just might become a much longer journey on this blog. I am hoping it will turn the tides within my thought streams, and bring you a tiny touch of happiness as well.
Please come with me...
