When life gets you down, don't give up
After eating pizza, I walked around a lake and took photos.
Sometimes life can be exhausting: mass killings, the world situation, violence, disappointment, illness, death. Someone in our extended family was robbed after a ball game and her boyfriend shot. He is paralyzed. Friends and family are battling cancer and serious illnesses. Warring nations, starving people, hurricanes and natural disasters...life can get you down.
Everyone needs a support system. Don't be afraid to reach out, state your feelings, needs, ask for what you want. Express gratitude.
When you are feeling down, look up. The night sky was an incredibly beautiful gift.
Stand out from the rest. Do something that makes you unique. Be a leader not a follower. Being different is OKAY.
Don't give in to your fears, and don't automatically turn tail and run.
There is a divine plan for each of us. Have faith. Hang in there.
I saw a photo on Facebook of a Native American captioned:
What if I told you the left wing and the right wing belong to the same bird?
What if we all vowed to seek peace?
