Today I was reminded that in between podcasts and traffic, bills and credit scores, striving and social media, there are people.
People who carry pain, hidden deep from view.
People who are grieving, who are dying. Sooner than the rest of us.
And I think that no one ever regrets being kind. Taking extra time to smile or ask someone a question. To stop and listen. To say a silent prayer for someone as you pass in the hall. To strive to find what we have in common, not what makes us different.
To break generational patterns by loving our children exactly as they are and not for who we think they should be.
To find peace and love and healing within our own selves.
Today I was reminded that life is fleeting.
