Life can be very messy at times. Drama happens, tempers flare, egos roar and imbalance can set in. OH how easy that road is to walk down. I can tell you, I am not an innocent. I have made many mistakes and taken the road well traveled. I have been lured at how easy it can be - it takes almost no strength at all to wind yourself into the pushing and shoving of words and energy. Sides are taken, lines are drawn............for what? Control? Power? It's an empty and lonely road in the end. Nothing good comes of it - you are left feeling drained and empty - never really gaining anything other than a hollow victory. We all have a choice. We can choose to join the crowd and feel justified and comfortable within the numbers - losing ourselves to the power of the group. Or we can choose to think for ourselves and what is appropriate for all sides of the situation. In almost every instance there is room for kindness.
When in doubt........create a little beauty. It could be a small thing - a smile, a kind word, a gesture of gratitude or a simple loving thought toward another. It doesn't require money,force or directions. It simply requires you to step out of the what is "wrong" with another and, just for a moment, think about what is pure.
