I’m staying away from social media. Which makes me sad, but rather that than so angry or hurt that I taste blood as I bite my tongue or fall further into depression because…why bother. What a person says and does matters. Sticks and stones–and bullets–break bones and dammit, words hurt just as much. This Note from the Universe dropped into my inbox recently. I can only control myself so for this Christmas season and beyond, I plan to do my level best to keep this in the back of my mind and act on it.
If you knew for absolute certain, Silver, that every little thing you did today would later be scrutinized, literally moment by moment, by a future you, and future friends, as well as anyone else interested, and you’d all be looking for a number of qualities, especially patience, kindness, and love, during this game of games and test of tests called life, how might you treat the very next person you see after reading this Note?

Popcorn, anyone? Twizzlers, Silver? Ooh, watch… Ahhhhh…!
I normally try to tie the message imparted by the Big U into writing. Today, however, I want the message to impact real life, not the made-up lives of characters in books. Though, I’ve always maintained that there’s a lot to be learned from reading romances–for both sides of the aisle. Now I need to make a grocery run. I’m low on popcorn, Twizzlers, and dog treats. Oh. And coffee. I’m definitely going to need coffee if I’m going to find my patience, kindness, and love.
