pause and consider

We all have to start somewhere, and though I've started many times before, I begin again. Thanks for checking in with me. 

Lately I've been feeling incredibly selfish. For my time, my family, my space, my words. Just about everything. Honestly, I'm not really liking this 'all-me-all-the-time' I've been inadvertently trying to carve out for myself. So I began thinking back on the times life has felt the most joyful and fulfilling, and it's been when my purpose was to help others shine. 

And so the catalyst for this blog is an attempt at selflessness. To keep it simple. To love simply. 

I'm often compelled to (insert word like 'pray' here) for people, groups of people, places, occurrences, situations and anything else I can think of really. I love dreaming of these different people or places, and I love sending them good vibes and wishing them the best in life, or peace, or laughter beyond compare, or rest, or whatever the case may be. And frankly, I was hoping you'd join me.

So I ask you to pause and consider. Imagine how the world might change if we all took some time, globally, to hold up a certain some-one/thing/place? I think it could be beautiful. I think our hearts will grow. I think love will grow as we grow. 

I don't know exactly how this will play out in the wash, but we can make it up as we go. 

You  might devote some time on the day you touch base here. Or you may think on the something through the week and ponder while spreading the love that direction. Or maybe you'll take the time to do some research and educate yourself so as to educate and love others. There's no right or wrong, there's just love. Simple.

I'll be back soon with the first communal something to send our love to. 

Thanks for stopping by. 
hugs
