As our year comes closer to an end I hope that you have felt that your year has had purpose. If nothing else, this new administration has given rise to the voices of many who once sat by silently letting their government officials do whatever it is they do. If you are reading this, perhaps you are one of those voices who has joined the chorus of outraged patriots who are watching our country slide down a slippery slope of hatred, greed, bigotry, and violence.
3.2 trillion dollars of tax cuts will have a huge impact on our country. It will be interesting to see the ramifications of this change. We won’t know for a while… money for government programs that people need will be at risk. Stay alert to small changes in the coming years… will you need to push back your retirement date, pay more for your health insurance? Who knows how this will affect our lives in the future.
Although our country is being led by a buffoon, our outrage is what will save us. It is our obligation to fight for peace, love, joy, compassion, and taking care of not only our fellow citizens, but ALL people of this country and the world.
Your purpose, to this end, can be manifested every day. Thinking critically about what you say and do, how you treat your family, friends and those who are not your friends, what you post and how you comment… what is your purpose? Are you making this world better with your actions, are you improving the lives of the people around you, are you helping rather than hurting? Are you walking through this world consciously with thought of your actions and comments? Each day you have a choice to raise your voice against stupidity, hatred, and greed. Each day you have a choice to raise your voice for kindness, mindfulness, love and peace.
You have a purpose, choose wisely…
