There’s been a lot of news lately that makes me feel down about what is happening in the world. Then I remind myself that there are far more beautiful things that happen in the world, that we simply don’t hear about or don’t see. The world we live in often feeds off the bad news to earn money, to create fear and attention. The same can be said for how much we are told on a daily basis by the media that we aren’t good enough. That somehow we need these clothes, we need to wear makeup or look a certain way to be ‘beautiful.’
Of course, we should be able to wear what we want or look the way we want. But, when it becomes a priority in our everyday life, it really makes me question what really matters in the world. Everyone has something beautiful growing within them,that was destined to be from the day they were born. It’s the choice in whether we let it shine out into the open world, or forget about it.
What really matters in the world is every individual. How can we, ourselves, me and you do the best we can as human beings? I believe with all my heart that this world needs far more kindness, love and compassion. Each of us can make a change by focusing on ourselves first and foremost. Learn to love yourself completely and you will have open arms to love those around you. The answer should always end with the word love. If people only feed and live off judgment, lies, fear, images and the way things look, rather than the way things truly are, then the change won’t happen. Every change starts with small steps.
What really matters to you? For me, it’s God, my family, the ones I love, animals, music and the creative industry. It’s having good health, breathing another day and the positive words in my life that keep me moving. “Be honest with yourself about what is truly important to you in your life You may find that it is already much closer than you think.” – Ruben Chavez.
