The Answer Is Love

Monday, January 27, 2020

Yesterday, brought a heaviness to the atmosphere that I haven't felt in a while. It had me reflecting and realizing how short life truly is. My mind flooded with an array of thoughts from how I interact with people and my loved ones to pursuing my dreams. I thought about all the times I allowed unnecessary situations to get to me and put distance between the people I love and me. Fighting, being angry, and holding grudges blocks us from building with that person. Being human comes with being different, and our differences shouldn't drive us to hate each other. In times like this, we need to remember that the answer is love. Love heals and helps us see the perspective of others. It's time for us to approach every situation with love and to live in love every day.

Break down those walls that you've placed around you that stopped you from going after your dreams. There's no such thing as limitations of what you can do. You have the power and are more than capable of creating the life that you want. Don't wait for approval because you don't need it. Love what you do and keep going after what you want. Make a promise to yourself to never stop living or pursuing your dreams. Nothing in life is guaranteed. So live, forgive, be kind to one another, be kind to yourself, be bold, find happiness, follow your dream, absorb every moment life offers you, and love. I'm going to live by and with love in everything I do and in every conversation I have. It's time to come together and encourage each other through tough times. If you see someone having a bad day, smile at them. Show them some love. It could change their life forever. As we go about our day, and if we're faced with something difficult, let's keep in mind that the answer is love.

"Have a good time. Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going. Put one foot in front of the other, smile, and just keep on rolling."— Kobe Bryant
