Joy is beautiful. More than any other single thing you can do to appear lovely, living life joyfully will make you a beautiful person. There is nothing more beautiful than joy that radiates.
Love heals. When you stop trying to control and just love, unequivocally and undeniably, you heal hurts. Usually your own. Love freely. Love passionately. Love everyone. Including you.
Pain remains. Every act matters. Even when pain caused is truly forgiven, it leaves a mark.
Guilt and regret are wasted emotions. You cannot change the past, you can only acknowledge your mistakes and move forward. All the feeling bad in the world never changes anything.
Most people are good people. The average person, if you give them the chance to be good to you, will. We do not need to live in fear of each other.
People who are acting bad have been hurt. You may not be able to see it, but they are damaged.
If you have a choice to make between the “right thing” and the loving thing, then you are confused. The loving thing is the right thing.
Even people you dislike and disagree with sometimes have truth to tell.
Children are born innocent and loving. All of them.
You are capable of doing more and withstanding more than you give yourself credit for. We are, all of us, human and that is a very powerful and amazing thing to be. If you want to, you can climb mountains and change the world.
Now, I have to go. I need to go love with wild abandon, dance joyfully in the face of apathy, give what I have to give into this world, and change my little corner of the world.
Leaving you today in perfect love and trust. Have a great day.
