As I mentioned in this blog’s birthday post, I’ve been in introspection mode.
Hence, my inactivity on WP.
As a matter of fact, I’ve been involved in some form of deep study, meditation, prayer and contemplation ever since this blog’s inception.
Trust me, there has always been something deeper lurking beneath my tomfoolery!
And I mean ALL. OF. IT!
I’ve spent a great deal of time reading works that span generations, distance and culture. In essence, I wanted to cull and synthesize enlightened concepts from a very broad perspective.
And you know what?
There were several common truths that absolutely permeated seemingly divergent schools of thought.
Ah…but there was one truth, other than love, that continued to leap all the way up into my frontal cortex!
And it was RESPONSIBILITY!
I get it, but follow me now…
What I have learned is that each one of us is personally responsible for our own lives.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand the temptation to dwell on all of the ways in which others have mistreated or abused us…I’ve had my share of both.
But in the end…
It is our responsibility to do whatever we need to do to take our lives into the direction of our choosing.
And to that end, I have been having some great discussions with my closest friends and family about how that might look in our own lives–regardless to the actions or inactions of mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, husband, wife, uncle, aunt, cousin, neice, nephew….society and so on.
I think one of my mama’s closest friends said it best…
“Gwin, don’t trust nobody with YOUR life!”
Though she said those words to me many years ago, they now ring with a resonant tone.
I’d like to share a video with you that was sent to me by one of my best friends, Sandra. She and I had been talking about this topic for a long time, so she was knocked off her feet when she stumbled upon this:
Watch the video before it gets pulled! LOL!
Here’s the link just in case!
Love and light to you all!
