I sure hope all you folks had a tremendous weekend and are now ready to begin a brand new week. May all of you be excited about all the possibilities that now lie dormant in the new week ahead. Its a brand new day, one that has never been lived in before, and it sits there like an empty canvas just waiting for you to add your own personal colors and touches to each new day. I also realize that many of you will find yourself facing situations that may be filled with unpleasant choices one has to make. And my hope for you is that you will be able to look past the outward appearances of these "tough" situations and get through them as quickly and easily as possible.Please remember that no matter what is going on in your life you have at your disposal all the new "brushes & colors" that you need to repaint your own new and improved masterpiece.
You know, I've been called a dreamer by many and a fool by some for the way I look at life. And you know what, it really doesn't bother me much how I am perceived by folks as long as they respect my decisions as much as I respect theirs. I would be quick to say that my beliefs are not meant for everyone at this moment.I know my life and my beliefs are my personal choices and that it doesn't make them either right or wrong. And Im sure in the future I will still rethink my views and change some of them from time to time. As I continue to live and experience new people new ideas and new beliefs I know I am still far from becoming my complete "real self".
It has been said there is a thin line between being a dreamer and being a fool.I like to think of myself as a dreamer but its ok if you or anyone else thinks of me as a fool. I believe in unity of all people,I keep an open mind and I accept you and everyone else just as they are.I may not agree(hell, I may even really hate) with some of your actions or beliefs. But I do believe you and I and everyone else is a part of each other. And if this is true then every action I do toward you Im doing it to myself as well.I believe in unconditional love and I believe there is truly a possibility that one day all of us will have learned to live in total love peace, and harmony on this one planet.Again I readily admit to being a dreamer but as the late great John Lennon once said "but Im not the only one, and I hope that one day you will join us and the world will live as one". Take care my fellow friends and neighbors and may this new week be the best one for you ever!
I now leave you with a quote from one of my favorite authors: "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundation unde them.--Henry David Thoreau
