Its a rough day, so why not post something unique.
Here’s a great quote from Obama and while I didn’t vote for him, I have come to appreciate him more.
“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” the former president told a group of young activists at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago in late October. “The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws.”
I have flaws, you have flaws and while we don’t advertise them, they are still there. I can think of 100 different things to be ashamed of, that would outright revolt some people from ever wanting to talk to me again. I have a set of friends who are married, who long ago once told me that I stretch the boundaries too far and that they don’t like hanging out with me sometimes. Keep in mind, I don’t do drugs or anything outright illicit, but I have been known to speed when driving, and use a bit of clout to get a discount or upgrade I might not qualify for.
So where am I going with this?
Regardless of your faith, the core of it is that we are all imperfect and we can do better. For some of us, we are saved through grace, some though works, some transcend when they further understand what that one thing is that connects it all. For me today, that one thing is love. Love of all the world has to offer, and all that it has and will take away. I love you and miss you. I thank you for being in my life and hope to grow as a human through a greater understanding of love.
Lastly, if you are looking up to the moon tonight, there is a new Comet to see: NEOWISE. You don’t need a telescope, just the Mark I eyeball. Take a look tonight, NEOWISE won’t make it back to the inner solar system for 6,800 years.
If you miss it tonight, look up to the moon, its the same majestic & wonderful moon we all see.
Thank you for reading & Peace be with you x3
