Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world

“Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break, and all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.” ~ L.R. Knost

Do Not Forget Who You Are…

You are brave
You are strong
You are inspiring
You are a king among all others
Most importantly you are loved
You are cherished
You are appreciated
You are valued
You are someone’s everything.

Why do we tend to let ourselves do only the things we think we’re good at, trained at, educated in, experienced with, experts at?

How do we do let go of this constraint? Why don’t we do it more often? And what happens when we do?

Which is to say: Don’t restrict yourself to doing only what you’re good at. Try doing something you yearn to do. Something that excites you. Something you may think you’re not good at but you’ve always wanted to try.

“War will stop when we no longer praise it, or give it any attention at all. Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited. Love will overflow every sanctuary given it. Truth will grow where the fertilizer that nourished it is also truth. Faith will be its own reward.” ~ Alice Walker

Let’s go for a swim

I stopped by the International Friendship Park but no one was there. The park, ironically, is just over the border fence with Mexico in Imperial Beach, San Diego, California. Just over the fence, which most could easily swim around, is the Monumental Plaza de Toros de Tijuana, or the Bullring by the Sea. According to their website Access to Friendship Park within the US federal patrol zone is available weekly on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm. The US side is supervised by Border Patrol agents and visitors should be prepared to show ID! (Sounds friendly! And internationally so!) Continue reading “Let’s go for a swim”
