A little good to remind us that life continues… Nature carries on. Normalcy still remains intact. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Take a deep breath and love those around you. Stand strong for what you believe, but do it in love. Examine yourself, your words, and your actions before your next reaction. Focus on your routines, your responsibilities and your daily tasks. Focus on the normalcy of your every day. That’s not going away. Stop. Breathe. Take the next right step. Turn off the tv, the news, social media, or the radio… whatever has you wound tight right now and let your mind relax. Think about good things. Normalcy. Everything you know is not going away. Stop allowing all that’s going on in the world today to erode your peace. Journal, go for a hike, ride your bike, visit with a friend and talk about your families, take dinner outside, read a good book, create something, and pray. You’re going to be ok. We’re going to be ok. Remember, this too shall pass. We will do our best, and in the end, overcome. Our world will be a better place. And you will be a better person. Be kind to yourself and take care of yourself today. You still matter.*
