Know the old saying—God will never give us more than we can handle? Well, HE sure put the entire world to the test this year, didn’t He? (I think He might have been a teeny bit mad at us!) I want to make the world a better place, but is there even a way to get there from here?
We faced the worst global disaster mankind has ever seen. The Pandemic took 2.4 million lives with 110 million confirmed cases of COVID19, and that was just for starters. Millions of people lost loved ones, their homes, businesses, freedom, faced school closings—all of this putting their mental health at risk.
In other words, 2020 Kicked Butt. It began with the Australian Bushfire that swept through the country, devastating floods in Indonesia, hurricanes battering America, locusts swarming in Africa, a volcano eruption in the Philippines, earthquakes, cyclones, floods, and now Antarctica is turning green. How can we possibly turn this around and make the world a better place?
Okay, in all fairness we might have brought a lot of this on ourselves. Politics, racial problems, and hatred has split this country in pieces, but if we can open our hearts and regain our sanity, which includes acceptance and compassion, we can all begin to heal.
Make the World a Better Place by Finding Our Happy Place
I’m turning to music now—All We Need is Love! Sing it with me everyone!
We are the World! We are the Children! Again, it’s about unity.
We all have suffered great loss in the past year, myself included. I’d listen to gorgeous music, such as Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and it would bring on the tears. No More! To make the world a better place, we must lift our own selves up. With that thought in mind, I will be listening to happy, upbeat music, the sound of ocean waves along the shore, sunshine, a new dawn. We must find our happy place, and look for it in our daily lives.
We need to be better, stronger, more resilient, and determined to leave a better world for our children than the one we made for ourselves.
Remember the many lovely beauty contestants that would say all they want is World Peace? Well, don’t you think it’s time we all wanted that too?
Wishing everyone out there a safe new world, healing, and positivity. Let’s learn from our mistakes and rise above them. Let’s do everything we can to make the world a better place. To health, happiness, and joy. We deserve it, don’t we?
