The past few days... weeks... have been a challenge. I make an effort to have a brighter disposition. But some days are harder than others.
Is it the bleak, gray sky? Is it the fact that right now there is a panel of judges deciding my future and equality? Is it the numerous individuals telling me that I'm a sinner and undeserving of fairness and my own unique pursuit of happiness? Is it strains between family members? Is it the lackluster performance of the store? I imagine it's a combination of all of these factors that are contributing to my current, less than perky, state. I am like a sponge. I soak up all these
In the midst of all this, I received a lovely email. The message was simple: Focus on love.
I may not be able to reach within my chest to replace it with a desert plant, but I can redirect my energies and feelings towards love. Love is my armor. Love is my defense. It protects me against harm and hurt, even when it comes from a close source. These challenges only make us stronger. Love is my talisman.
