This year I have determined that I will embrace all the greatest things I know to be true. That human kindness lives in the heart of people in the midst of most things. That our first reaction is not to resort to the lowest of human emotions, responses, reactions but to stretch out a hand to help someone stand. It's what comes natural to our spiritual selves. Or perhaps it triggers something Like the basic choices made in the hit series Westworld. Do you choose the white hat or the black hat for yourself. Do you embrace the power of your own personal choices?
I know a few things more certain than I ever have in my long/short flash of a life. I am so blessed. So thankful. For the love of family, for the love of friends for the truest side of love that matters and is still standing when the rumbles of the past reside. And that I am the grandaughter of Estelle and the daughter of a woman so strong her name pales in comparison to her being. They have shadowed me with their dna. They have birthed me stronger than I ever thought I would become.
And so it is with you. Friends and readers. Stronger than you knew you were. Stronger friends standing by. Stronger daughters, sons, fathers, brothers, mothers. Shouldering one another in times that have challenged your faith, your days your being. We stand together. Period. Let the sides of this and that and all our disagreements fall off the face of the earth for a moment, for night. Go see Rogue 1 and understand that in the history of our lives that great sacrifces have been made that we should be here, free to movie, free to wine and dine, free to embrace and laugh and love. So that we could embrace and laugh and love to the fullest not moan and groan and feed on the kind of whitewash that would lead us into oblivion.
Laugh this year in the face of all and everything. Laugh because the moon still moves through the sky, the stars still fall in tiny, shooting flashes, debre of a million years of light that we look up and see, breathless, in wonder that we are spinning so fast in a vast, dark universe full of mysteries yet unknown.
2017. It holds the thing that yet will be. But you and me. We've got each other. Make eye contract. Hold eye contact. Tell someone something that matters. In the now. The proverbial midnight hour of now or never. The now of always and forever.
And just remember in the coming year. Be that you. :) The real, dear, embracable, fallible, broken, and funny you. More than ever before. Because I assure you that's all that God and the great, good Earth has ever asked or needed you to be. Transparent, real and magnificent in all your broken glory.
Thanks so much for reading, liking and sharing with friends.
