Why I Do What I Do
It's time for some hope and healing.
We are living in some challenging times. I don’t know about yours, but my social media feeds are loaded with images of suffering from around the world, political upheaval and general negativity. Newscasts fake or not fake (that’s up for debate) are loaded with doom, gloom and drama. I would like to see that change, wouldn’t you?
If we aren’t careful we can become exhausted, depressed or even worse, seriously ill from continual exposure to bad news and traumatic situations. Nobody has time for that. My heart and mind can only take so much before the cracks begin to show.
I would like to be one who changes that atmosphere into one of peace and transformation. This is why I do what I do. I am choosing to use my resources and creativity to inspire hope and healing in our generation.
When I say hope and healing, I am not referring to hope as in engaging positive wishes or creating the idea of utopia. I am not referring to healing in the sense that I am a licensed physician who is practicing medicine.
What I am talking about in regards to hope is offering a vision of encouragement and goodness. I am talking about healing in regards to nurturing of bodies (our physical being) toward wholeness, engaging souls (mind, will and emotions) toward health, and empowering our spirits (the part of us that is continual union with our Creator) towards eternal matters.
We can become the greatest influence of our time when we surrender all our darkness in exchange for beauty.
We all have stories of victory we can share that restore ones faith. We have all seen art that somehow enables us to experience something great we haven’t yet encountered. We have all read that one book that brought us across the long bridge to the next place on our journey.
What if we were strategic in our focus to transform our society from grim to good?
Let’s give it a chance.
This is my endeavor. I inspire hope and healing.
