Are we tired of this yet? Politics/ Leadership…what is your Why?

Sticky subjects are the worst, but someone has to highlight the obvious because we continue to allow history to repeat itself. So here I go…

Stop using the term ‘Make America Great Again!’ Your ANCESTORS are rolling over in their grave! Using the term ‘AGAIN’ so loosely!

We have come so far…the entire world has come so far! From way back then or whenever these confused leaders are referring to! And NO I am not speaking of one particular leader…to be honest I think we need a reboot, but that’s another post.

Instead of all this nonsense…let’s GRASP HANDS AS A NATION or even A WORLD… United we stand, divide we fall…STAND UP WITH ME! STAND UP TOGETHER!

Not in a furry or with fierceness, but rather out of kindness from your very soul!

Allow your light to shine! If someone differs from you…embrace their thoughts.

If someone is mean to you…lift them up for they are fighting or feeding their own internal beast.

It is time my friends! To stand up!!! Lift each other up…utilize two words, BE KIND!

We can live in harmony!

I know what has happened & yes, I too feel the sting of losing, even more to the hands of those who are lost & without a beautiful vision of the future!

But I can’t hold this message back, ANY LONGER!

It is for you, You, & YOU! From the President of the United States of America to the Queen of England, to all who will read, share & most importantly ACT!

Act out of love, speak your why, find your own how…to illuminate the greatness ALL AROUND YOU!

Wherever, you may be at this time, allow the vibrations of this message to soothe your soul. To soften your heart & change your focus.

Focus on the vision you so desire. All the Kings horses and all the Kings wo/men WILL be able to put together a new, more beautiful, VISION, than ever known to mankind, before!

Idc… what religious background, race, economical status, educational, or nationality you claim to be…This will only work if YOU STAND UP, CLASP HANDS, & BE THE EXAMPLE YOU DESIRE TO SEE IN AMERICA and/or THE WORLD!

Each and everyday make a better decision or choice, than the day before. Allow your words towards others to be kind.

If you falter, regroup & begin again. Remember, we all have greatness within us…it is time to let it out!

What if…tonight’s news only had news based on Acts of Random Kindness? Would you continue to watch?

Take the steps towards EVERYONE’S BETTER…rather than reverting back to an undefined ‘great again’.

Step 1 Look for the good in all people, places, and situations.

Step 2 When you see or feel something you don’t like…refer to step 1.

Step 3 Before you speak or act…PAUSE & ensure your intentions are good and pure.

Step 4 If you slip back into your old ways, refer to Step 1.

Step 5 Know that we are all spiritually in this together. Our 1 universal goal, we all share is BETTER!

Therefore, isn’t it time for you to act, feel, & Enjoy BETTER?

Together we can accomplish BETTER FOR ALL OF MANKIND!

God Bless…this truly is a Sunshine Message.

I am only the messenger, but I am so honored to be just that!

With Greater Love than YOU CAN PHATHOM…I Wish for you Beautiful Blessings!

If you are reading this, know that I am in Awe of you and you are greatly appreciated.

Carry On!

I am shaking in my shoes after that one!

Love, Sunshine!

We don’t like you!! One Flamingo said to the other…

Freddy the Pink Flamingo was hanging out with his friends. They played games, cooked out, and laughed, all day long.

As Freddy was retrieving the hoola hoop from ring the neck of a Flamingo, he saw a gigantic moving truck pull in.

He ran back to his friends with great excitement screeching, “A new Flamingo is moving in! Hey! Hey! I just saw a moving truck and a new Flamingo is moving in!”

Frank, Fillip, Frances, and some of the other Flamingos gathered around Freddy to hear what he was so excited about! “Aren’t you all excited? I wonder if they like to cook out, play games…” Freddy questioned.

“Of course they will like everything we like, they are Pink Flamingos!” Frank commented, acting as if Freddy was silly for being so excited. “Come on let’s finish this game I am winning!” he continued.

But Freddy was too excited to meet his new neighbors!

He peeked through the small hole of the joining privacy fence, which was created by his best friend Flipper, before he moved out of town.

His right eye ball made a complete circle as he scanned the backyard. But not one sign of a new Flamingo, yet.

Until…as he began to turn around and sadly report I can’t see anyth…he was abruptly interupted by a gigantic gasp from his friends. He looked puzzled as to why they were all starring at him with a horrible look plastered on their beaks!

Freddy froze and felt like he was turning white.

Before he could sputter any words from his beak…he felt a shadow towering over him. He quickly rolled his eyes up, up, up and over his head.

“Aaaaaaaaaaa,” he began to scream and scream.

The different colored, too tall, odd shaped thingy, simply pulled her head back and slowly walked into the back door of her new home.

“What was that?” He asked.

Freddy’s friends surrounded him and everyone began to talk at once. In a chaotic Flamingo chatter.

Until…they heard a light tap, tap, tap on the gate of Freddy’s back yard.

All of the Pink Flamingos held their breath and became silent. As if the tap, tap, tap on the other side of the gate would ‘think’ no one was home.

Tap, tap, tap once again.

Finally, Freddy slowly unlocked the gate, peeked through the tiny crack and…

What did he find?

A neon green, beautiful, bright Flamingo just his size.

“Hello, I am Franky. May I come over to play, while my mommies unpack.”

Freddy was so excited that she was not the tall blue looking bird, he encountered on the other side of the fence that he replied with, “Of course come in and meet all my friends!”

Franky timidly walked through the gate, looked around, smiled and quietly introduced herself, “Hello, I am Freddy’s new neighbor, Franky.”

As Freddy danced back and forth, he grabbed a hot dog off the table and created a delicious plate of food for his new friend, he saw something happen, that was not too pleasing. 😔😢😢😔

Many of his friends were now in a group snickering and being quite rude to Franky.

Frank looked at Franky in a disgusting manner and asked,”Why is your skin Green? Yuk! And why is your name Franky if you are a GIRL?”😬😬😲😲

Several others chimed in as if they were in agreement with Frank. They all starred at poor little Franky anticipating her answer, as if she could come up with a decent answer, as to why she looks different.👽

But before Franky could answer the big, blue, thingy…peeking over the fence from earlier, yelled out, “Franky, Franky where are you?”

Franky with a sigh dropped her head and vanished behind the gate as fast as she had entered.

Freddy was mad! He ruffled his feathers and stomped his flimsy legs over to his other Pink Flamingo friends. “Why? Why were you mean to our new friend?”😠

Everyone acted like he was silly. Fillip stepped up and explained to Freddy. “We don’t like Franky.”

“Why?”

“Because, she is green!!!! And a girl.”

All of Freddy’s friends agreed this new neighbor, was not their friend.

Their squawks, filled with complaints, were quickly drowned out by music echoing from Franky’s yard.

All the boys rushed over to the peep hole in the privacy fence. Pink feathers were flying as they pushed and shoved to attempt to see where the music was coming from.

The big, blue, Flamingo who towered over the six foot privacy fence, hung her head over to calmly ask,”Would you like to come over?”

With their beaks pointing up really high, towards the sky, they shook their heads in perfect unison, Yes!

With their feathers ruffled as if they were taking flight, the boys took off running towards Franky’s back yard.

Freddy decided not to go because he was so mad at how rude his friends were. 😠😳

When the boys entered the gate their eyes almost popped out of their heads! Toys, a sand box, outside games, a swing set and at least ten other Flamingos. All GIRLS! And All different colors!💖💚💙💜💛

At first Ralph, Freddy’s best friend felt sad that Freddy didn’t come and began to turn around to beg him to join them.

Until, he spotted Franky slipping out the gate to go ask Freddy. Before she disappeared she paused, turned around and winked at Ralph. He smiled real big and went off to play in the sand box with Mabel the purple Flamingo.😉

To be continued…

What do you think Freddy said to Franky? Do you think he joined them or did he tell Franky all about how terrible his friends were?

What would you do? Have you ever judged someone by their outside appearance? I am sure we all have.

Please, place the blinders over your eyes and proceed forward

When our paths cross, I would like to ask you, to do me a favor, human to human, look at me with blinded eyes.

Blinded to my beliefs that were embedded in my brain through my surroundings.

Blinded by the color of my skin that I did not choose, but rather it was bestowed upon me by the DNA of my mother and father.

Blinded by the land I was born, by my judgement, your judgement and our diversities that separate us.

Rather enjoy my smile, a hug or a moment of peace. Because although we are all differentiated by a beautiful array of backgrounds, our similarities stitch us together.

Drawing us closer, regardless of our differences. We are people and people are in pursuit of happiness, betterment, improvement and/or comfort while experiencing this journey.

Isn’t it time we find solutions in each other? The solutions to allow you, to live the life you desire?

United we stand and divided we fall! Come on my human friends. Close your eyes and instead of continuously highlighting the problems in others; feel our similarities. And…

Live like you have never lived before.

Love with your entire being…yourself, others and all experiences.

Carry On! Carry on with your pursuit to improve and feel good.

Love will always win!

God Loves You no matter what!

People are people, everywhere you go

As I snuggle in from a fabulous journey across the United States, I reflect back over the many faces I have seen. The beautiful array of colors, in people. The magnificent rainbow of languages for communication. My favorite is the plume of backgrounds intertwined with culture, beliefs and heritage.

As our differences are continuously illuminated, our similarities need to be highlighted and celebrated!

From the homeless to the wealthiest, continent to continent, it doesn’t matter we are all aiming for the same goal. I know this sounds a bit odd, but keep reading, I promise, this becomes more and more intriguing.

My mom said, “I remember telling my mother, while traveling for work, people are just people, everywhere you go.”

As I began to become more observant throughout my adventure in LA, I pondered about her statement to Baw Baw (my grandma), “Why do people do what they do? How are we all so different, but similar, all in one?”

While waiting at the airport, I had to know, Why people do what they do. Therefore, I began to ask, “Why are you traveling today? Why do you do your job? What are you in pursuit of?

I only scared a few people away. However, most replied with similar answers. It wasn’t segregated into color of skin, religious beliefs or cultural backgrounds. It was for one soul purpose, to create a better life. In one way or another.

If they replied with, “I am traveling for a vacation.”

It was to improve their lives. Enrich their souls and regroup.

Several were returning home to bury a loved one or say farwell. Although sad, it continues to be the reason they are traveling is to improve their lives. Through accepting and having the closure.

Others said for work. When I asked the traveling saleswoman if she was only paid in travel, room and board would she continue this career path. She immediately responded with, “NO. What would be the point?”

What would be the point? There wouldnt be, for the woman who is busting her butt to create a better life for her kids.

Yet, this type of set up would work well and be an improvement for someone in a different circumstance.

But wait a minute…if people are so different why are we all in pursuit of the same results? Because people are ‘people’ all across the world and although our differences allow for interesting individuality, we are all striving for…

A better feeling. A best or ideal situation for me and my family.

Here is the most freeing portion of this story…it is okay! You are okay! We all want ‘better’ out of life.

You begin at your point of reference and I will begin at mine. And we will cross paths along the way. After all, we are all on this terrific journey…together.

May you be blessed today.

Know that no matter where you are at this point in your life, YOU ARE LOVED!
