We are all so different. Unique is the right word.
When we choose to only be around people who live near us, or look like us, or eat like us or think like us, we create division and miss opportunities of connection
I see a lot of women shutting men out of the conversation
I see a lot of people shutting out others, based on their political views.
I see a lot of spiritual people talking about what and who is spiritual and not spiritual (everything is spiritual).
It's happening all around us everyday.
This week I had a meeting with The Women of Color organization.
In this meeting was not just women, but people of all races and men too
Same desire to love and be loved
To live free, connected, and happy
Some have different political and spiritual perspectives
A lot of the people I choose to be in my life don't think like me or agree with everything I say
Sometimes they embody parts of me that are less expressed, but still within me
We all are...
Mirroring aspects that are expressed or unexpressed back to each other
Showing us our blind spots, stretching us to open our minds and hearts
To keep learning from each other
To not stay stagnant or narrow minded
To pull us out of our comfort zones
To keep us humble in knowing we don't have it all figured out
We are each just walking each other home, back to love
By being authentically who we are so others can be too
In each of our sweet differences and sameness. UNIQUE we each are.
Honor everyone's UNIQUENESS
