the Infinite Money speaks: on a bigger love

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…

.

The past four years have brought so much change to my life, but so much more hope. Not hope in politics or right beliefs, but in how we can relate to one another in our differences. I have hope that we can choose kindness even in disagreement. I have hope that we can find peace even when there is uncertainty. I have hope that we can love one another with a love that is bigger than our fears. This is a hope that brings change, and it begins with me.

    • I agree, especially since she has been able to maintain it in an ongoing difficult situation.

      There are so many great bloggers out there, and I’m hoping that all of these wonderful inspiring statements will sink into my thick skull 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I see so much pessimism, meanness, cynicism, and just plain unfriendliness these days, and some days it really gets to me. I just want everyone to be happy! Sometimes I feel like most people around me have given up, especially on each other, forgetting that we’re all human despite our differences, and it’s our differences that make life interesting and amazing. When things and people start to get to me, I remind myself that it starts with me and not to take it personally when someone acts in a manner I don’t understand. It might be that the Golden Rule is one of the most important (and hardest) things we ever learned!

    • It’s crazy that it can be so hard, isn’t it? It’s like a big circle, where the bad feelings and behavior feeds on itself and it goes round and round. It’s pretty easy to be nice and kind and friendly when people are treating you that way, but the hard part is to be that way when others are crapping on you.

      But that’s just the thing: I think you’ve got it all right when you say, “Don’t take it personally.” We do that (I do that) and really, how is it we think a stranger is acting like an ass because of US? Maybe they’re having a bad day, maybe that’s just who they are, but it has nothing to do with us. Even if we do something really, really stupid that messes up their entire day, how they handle that has nothing to do with us. How we handle it, however, has everything to do with us.
