Happiness and the immensity of it all

Happiness and the immensity of it all

I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires. ~ Kahlil Gibran

the world

So the other day I got a really interesting note from a friend who also happens to be a follower of the Church of Abnormal Acceptance and the Ministry of Happiness.   She went on a bit of a rant, not much of an oddity for my friend if you know her, in fact her rants kind of make me smile.  They come from a really great place because my friend Becky is all heart and so she comes at the world that way.  This makes her one of the most loving and caring people you can imagine, but of course when she gets hurt she feels it with her whole being.

What got her rant started on this particular night is the immensity of it all.  The world can be a really horrifying and incomprehensibly terrible thing.  There are sooooo many problems in this world, poverty, starvation, global climate change, the way we treat animals, the way we treat each other, don’t even get me started on US politics.  The thing is these things and many, many more will always be there, we’ll never live in a perfect world.

So we have to find ways, not to ignore all of it, but to address the things we can.  We need to address the problems closest to us, the problems we can impact, that we can handle.  If everyone just made their individual worlds a little better, a little happier then maybe we’d be a lot closer to that perfect world.  Have a wonderful and happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
