Come Together!

Life can be brutal sometimes. Since we are pretty much stuck on this plant with eachother, we need to learn how to better get along. Anger has become widespread. Holding grudges does not serve us well, collectively or individually. We can learn to put aside pride and stop festering over perceived offenses! Then we can begin building bridges to our neighbors and experience more love.
Here are a few suggestions that have helped me improve my attitide and my life:
– Discover a new healthy snack. For me it was nuts, unsalted.
– Get outdoors
– Bond with an animal. My cat’s innocence rubs off on me, although he can be a little manipulative!
– Forgive someone from the heart, with or without words. You’ll feel your blood pressure drop instantly.
– Accept stress as a part of life. I recall someone once said “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.”
– Take a nap: no guilt and no apologies.
– Share an old family recipe with a new friend. These are heirlooms! Just reading through them together can cement a friendship and motivate us to have fun in the kitchen.
– Trust God. Study the Bible to find evidence of God’s love for us. For example, I was excited whenI stumbled on this:
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call I will answer and while they are yet speaking I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24
