Don’t miss it…
The good things going on in your life
The reasons to be thankful
The opportunities to smile
The blessings that are unfolding for you right now…
Happiness may not be screaming for your attention in the same way that negativity does, but it’s there, quietly waiting for you to see and embrace it…
Don’t miss it!!! ~ Sean King
Today I’m going to sing like I’m in concert, and it don’t matter who’s listening. Today I’m going to dance like I’m on the set of the Thriller video, and it don’t matter who’s watching. Today I’m going to smile like I’m advertising toothpaste, and it don’t matter if I’m the only one smiling. Today I’m going to look you in the eyes and say hello, and it don’t matter if you greet me back. Today I’m going to speak broken English, and it don’t matter if you have a problem with it. Today I’m going to be happy for no damn reason other than the fact that life is beautiful, and it don’t matter if you get irritated with me.
Today I’m going to do some un-American things, like give thanks to God instead of my country, read the Qur’an and the Bible, turn off the TV and embrace life, be kind without ulterior motives, write an unstructured poem, converse with a homeless man or a woman without judgment, walk fearlessly with my head high and my heart on my sleeve, and be thankful for a freedom that came from God and not through drone missiles or military force. Today I’m going to say In God We Trust and Mean It.
Today I’m going to tell the world that you can’t be free if you live in fear of our children, of the terrorists, of the big black man, of my long bearded turban wearing Arab brother, of the white supremacist, of the Mexican mafia, of poverty, of not having a bunch of consumer goods we don’t need, of failure, or of being alone… If it is, it’s because God wants it to be.
Today I’m going to love you, even if you don’t love me, even if you don’t love yourself, even if you don’t understand what love is, even if you don’t want to be loved… Today I’m going to love you without expectations of reciprocity or the condition that you need to earn my love. Today I’m going to give my love for free because I’m free.
What are you going to do today?
Good day beautiful people. I say beautiful, because no matter what mistakes you made yesterday, no matter how short you fell of your goals, no matter how mad someone made you or you are of yourself, today is a new day… and today you have the opportunity to be beautiful.
Today you have an opportunity to free yourself from the weight of yesterday by letting go of all the unnecessary baggage that’s weighing you down; fear, anger, disappointment, pain, insecurity, etc. Today you have an opportunity to forgive, others and yourself, and to accept yesterday for what it was; yesterday. Today you have an opportunity to be mentally and spiritually reborn. A chance to be kind, to give a hug, and to let somebody know that you love them. Today you can be beautiful.
I know it won’t be easy. I know yesterday will try to sink its claws into us and keep us from moving forward, but for today’s challenges we need to pack light. We need to bring only what’s needed. To look at all of that stuff and ask the question, is it moving me forward, is it making me better, is it helping me to feel as beautiful as God created me to be? If not then let it go immediately. Today we’ve only been given just enough time to embrace life, to love ourselves and others, to let go of yesterday, and to be exactly how God intended us to be. Beautiful.
Again, I say good day beautiful people. I say beautiful, because beautiful is what you are.
