****This keynote could be very sensitive as I believe in God if you don’t just replace God with the universe or higher power. ****
So if you are anything like me and i bet you aren’t lol, people have been disappointing you left and right. Okay, people have been disappointing ME left And right!
I can speak of how they treat others and how they treat the earth and the things in it in general but i will just speak of what i feel I have been going through.
You know, When I get on a plane I coach myself. “This is going to be a great flight”! I’m going to smile and speak to everyone, give great service, 2 drinks even if they want it with no hesitation. I’m gonna laugh and joke and even sit in their laps. Kidding about the latter. And then boom, one person ruins it for all the other 300 passengers with some sly ass remark or just all their bitterness and negativity. And for the rest of the flight I give everyone the bare minimum that I am required to give.
Out in the world I say hello to people and smile attempt to be personable and there are many times it’s not genuinely returned if returned at all.
In my personal life, I often times feel lonely. I feel like I’m constantly telling my relationships and friendships and family how to love me. How to respect me. Make me happy and how to be there for me. It becomes such a task that I don’t actually enjoy when everything is aligning as I may often times overlook the good because I’m so used to the bad.
Truth is there is a problem with ME expecting the world and everyone in it to please me. To really show up for me. No matter who they are!!! Family or friend or lover! They are all flesh and apart of the world. They too are missing things and become a bit jaded or tired of constantly doing and not receiving. I get it! I really do!
What I’m learning to do is not depend so much on the world and the people in it! Still loving them and accepting their support when needed and available. But really just letting go and enjoying the things the universe/God/higher power has provided! That is peace of mind in knowing that I got me and that’s blessing enough.
It’s time we start meditating and digging deep within ourselves for the peace we crave. It’s time we stop expecting the people of the world to be everything we need and realize that the universe has provided the knowledge and wisdom for us to really BE Still and seek within ourselves. It’s time!!!! Time to love without expectation, give without return, live with no regrets, breathe, be happy and truly peaceful within our lives! It’s possible. If we just tap out of the world and BE spiritual! In touch with the world outside of our world that we know. Begin to BElieve in something as we start to doubt all the tangible things we already know. So go ahead. Start seeking God/the universe/ your higher power. You may end up finding yourself. Actually i know you will.
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!
