As a child, I saw world peace as an ultimate goal. It never even occurred to me that it was a lofty goal.

I thought, “Well, peace makes perfect sense for everyone, so it just cannot be that hard to make happen, right?” As I grew older, I went along with this theory for a little while, but I quickly became too concerned with my own lack of peace to involve myself too much in the world.

Then I focused on inner peace.

I believed wholeheartedly that if my mind would shut-up and I could have inner peace, that would solve my issues.

Then, I questioned the ability to experience inner peace when outer peace was just never gonna happen!

Then, I focused on love. The kind of love that:

  • Sees the truth
  • Tells the truth ( but also knows when to be quiet)
  • Is sometimes loud
  • Gets dirty
  • Is ready to go the distance
  • Is willing to be waist deep in someone else’s pain
  • Is able to look foolish – fumble over words, shake and be alive, (whatever that looks like)

Exploring all these facets, more and more, everyday.

I found that peace followed. A special kind of peace. A peace that happens when your deepest self begins to emerge and all else falls away.

I love you!
