ITs Ok TO PLANT SEEDS OF LOVE

By |April 26th, 2015|

Recently, i was reminded of the great importance of planting seeds of love, hope & self acceptance at a young age in the hearts of our kids. I received a picture of a friend & her kids holding the ITs of vibe in their hands. It was beautiful to see them with their smiles & eyes all lit up like that. Earlier this week, i was also blessed to witness another friend's kid wearing proudly the Be your own hero T-shirt. No need to say it touched my heart deeply but also got me to reflect on my childhood hero's & life inspiration. I wonder, if i hadn't been exposed to my 5th grade teacher Miss Aunto's poster wall ''Never Let go of your dreams'', or hadn't grown up learning about people like Terry Fox with his Marathon of hope or not having #4 from the Bishop Gaiters basket ball team telling me again & again ''Just be true to yourself'', would i be the same person today? Probably not. These seeds where planted at a very young age in my mind & heart. And today have grown through my body & soul. I believe we become a result of all the things we learn & are exposed to. So let's teach our kids about love & hope, about compassion with ourselves & others, about treating ourselves & each other with respect. But let's also be honest with them. Life is not always easy. And we don't always choose life's out come. But we do have the power on how we choose to live every life situation. So if we keep cultivating the positive vibe & love flowing in our veins & around us, ITs [...]

At some point i remember looking at the crowd, the couples kissing, the people who were there with friends, and although i was surrounded by thousands of people, i felt really lonely. That empty feeling started to rise in my body & mind. But then my soft voice said: ''Wait a minute. Are you really alone? Look around you. Can't you see and feel all that love & connection around you? Look at all those beautiful souls you get to share this moment with. You might have come here alone. But you are most defiantly not alone!''. All i had to do was to listened & open my heart to those words and to what was right there in front of me. I needed to switch the negative thinking of what i didn't have into positive state of mind and appreciate what was already here. As soon as i did that, the energy shifted inside of me and started to be in peace in the present moment. In fact, i couldn't stop smiling. Something inside told me i was gonna make a beautiful encounter. I started observing the people. Listening. Feeling. Sinking in the present moment. Embracing every seconds of it feeling alive. It was at that moment of embracing it all, that i almost stumbled on the lady's bag who was standing just behind me. My instinct was right, i did meet someone that will forever change me in some way. What a beautiful soul she was. The connection between us right at that [...]
