Life: Life now has changed drasticlly over the past eight months. We have become a faceless society because of the hysteria of Covid-19. Because a common criminal lost his life unnecessarily, there are those who dispect our law enforcement. The BLM airs commercials that say “only black lives matter” when God says “all lives matter”. The Democrats try to impeach a President who is fighting for all people and when that fails they continue to show disrespect. At an early age most of us were taught to “play nice in the sandbox” and yet look at how our politicians act. Our world is being plagued with disease and environmental distruction. And yet there is still hope! Still hope that peace will prevail, that people will go back to the values that they were raised with, that they will learn to respect each other and our environment. Life will go on.
Love: While there are all types of love, the love of God is the most important. God in his infinite wisdom has tried to teach us all love. Love is not always perfect nor is it always kind or forever. What it is though is about giving of ourselves. When we love it is not only emotionally satisfying but also has positive health benefits. Regardless of whether your love is directed at your significant other, children or family members, it can be a powerful thing. It satisfies the endorphins in our brain to make us happy.
Pursuit of happiness: Even though the pursuit of happiness is a personal goal, it is also our legal right as stated in the constitution. Regardless of what control our government tries to exercise over us, we have the right to pursue happiness. We have the right to find that one thing that meets our ultimate goal. Regardless of whether you are the CEO of the wealthiest company in the country or a homeless person in the slums of a small town, you still have the right to pursue happiness. Who says that homeless person can’t achieve success? Just because someone is wealthy doesn’t make them happy or successful. That homeless person can find a home but that rich executive may not necessarily find peace of mind. What makes you happy? It doesn’t matter if it pleases other people as long as you don’t do harm to others. Find what matters to you!
Have a great day and be happy!
