Today, instead of spending countless hours watching news commentators dissect each moment and movement of the last week of Whitney Houston's life and creating stories about how/why she died; we actively looked for ways we could add some kindness to another persons life?
What if we each did what showed up for us to do? Check out this video:
What if we were aware enough to notice the opportunities that are showing up in our lives?
What if we stopped listening to political leaders trying to convince us that "they" have a plan to restore confidence/jobs/pride or the past glory of a bygone time--that only exists in retrospect anyway? What if we let go of thinking anyone else can fix the mess we are in but us?
What if we took a one day break from our agenda about the issues that seem to divide us and put the same energy into finding ways to work together for our common good?
What if we dropped out story about everyone else. What if we turned away from whatever it is that we think "they" should or shouldn't do about this, that or the other thing? What if we released needing to get anything and focused out attention on what we have to give?
What if we each laid our carefully crafted, hand painted, designer logo life aside for one day?
"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." ~Jesus (John 15:12-13)What if we took matters into our own hands and unleashed Love in our world? What if we stop waiting for someone else to do it?
What if One Day is today?
