The warmth of the sun
The beauty of nature
Snuggling with my dogs
I really believe that most people are genuinely good. We are all just trying to do what we think is best in this world.
There are so many tasks we put on ourselves that aren’t truly necessary. My house might be a mess and that’s fine. I don’t have to cook a big dinner every night. As long as my basic needs are met and I can focus on connections with those I love, everything else will be okay.
I attempt to have compassion and understanding for all, even those I might not agree with. It is so easy to dig in our heels and refuse to change our views, but I find that seeing things through the eyes of others helps me connect with them and I hope they can form some connection with me as well.
I show that I am thinking of them by sending a text of something that reminded me of them or giving gifts/treats when I can.
I see that my feelings might not be the only possible perspective on a situation. I can embrace empathy for others and be patient with them.
These experiences have always been a time when I have been one with nature. Experiencing a moment of connectedness with the world that feels infinite.
