So I realize I have been a little heavy handed on the “they are not for us” talk lately, and it is certainly not my intention to focus on the troubles of the world. There are enough outlets for that available. This blog is about two things taken figuratively: Being Beautiful and Dancing. It is my assertion that there is always, always, always something beautiful unfolding around us and if we dance with Life, allow things to unfold as they will, we will become more attuned to seeing these beautiful things. So how about some Good News?!
This 5 Year old kid cut off his hair, asked people to donate money to encourage him to do it, then donated the money to the children’s unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital. Nice!
This is Jon Bon Jovi. He opened a “community restaurant with no prices on the menu; customers donate to pay for their meal. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work in exchange for your family’s meal.” How awesome is that? Apparently this type of restaurant is springing up in places all over the country. Wouldn’t it be nice to support this idea?
I’m afraid trying to recap this child’s story in just a few sentences would do her an injustice. So please read it when you have the chance. And remember, regardless of your circumstance, your inner-voice is always with you, directing you and leading you out of bondage. In her case, literally leading her out of bondage.
I don’t have a story to go along with this. Just look at it and know THAT is happening in the world right now. While you’re stuck in traffic, or putting together TPS reports, or emotionally eating through a pint of ice cream…there’s a child with a big beautiful smile on his face just enjoying being alive.
I hope we all do the same…
