Rise Above

I have not been myself emotionally for about a month now (all is well here at home right now, thank God, we are Blessed). There are things that are happening in the world that have angered me, and there were days that I just wanted to speak my mind, and then get off of social media, and never come back. I also realized that it’s not enough anymore to just ignore, remove myself from groups, stay quiet, and scroll past. I’m not going to do that because the problems won’t go away.

It’s NOT okay to be rude. It’s NOT okay to ridicule anyone. It’s not okay to spew vitriol. If you don’t like someone move on. If you don’t care for your leader, exercise your right to vote, don’t perpetuate hatred, animosity, and negativity, because you’re falling right into their pit of ugliness. Find another way, a positive way to express yourself.

Rise above.

Luckily, I stumbled across this beautifully written piece by a person I admire, and I gained a healthier perspective on how to conduct myself, because anger, and hostility will never ever work.

So enlighten yourself by opening the link below, and we all, one person at a time, CAN and should make a difference.

A clip from Oprah’s piece:
https://www.oprahmag.com/…/a25401249/oprah-coming-together/…

“In moments of meditation and reflection, I try to take the cosmic view, imagining our world from the vantage point of the stars. All of us here on earth demeaning each other, thinking that skin color, ethnicity, or territory is a reason to devalue another human; killing the “other” for how they look, how they worship, how they speak, how they act. For simply being.

We’re losing what it means to be civilized. We’re losing respect for lives other than our own.” (Oprah)

Greetings! My past contributions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel (2016/17) gave me great joy by having assisted exactly 1,700 future and return Guests in planning their magical vacations. I am a former instrumental music teacher, full-time mom of two older children- a daughter studying medicine, and an autistic son in the phases of adult transitions. Art history, reading, and enjoying travel are all hobbies that keep me happy and distract me a little from the daily challenges of being a full-time caregiver. Thank you for checking in, and for taking the time to read my posts.
