Although it is natural to feel uncomfortable with changes, I often remind myself that change is the nature of life and that often change can be a good thing. Perhaps a lot of our systems are needing to be revamped in a way that will be more functional for all of us. Obviously, they were not working too well before or we would not be experiencing the consequences that we have been.
I have been thinking a lot about what John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”. While it would be nice if others could solve our problems for us, it is best for us to be the solution we wish to see in the world. When we appreciate how many things are under our control, we can feel more empowered. If we wish to have more, then we can consider how we can give more. Sometimes things have to get pretty loud for us to hear them and to be willing to make a change.
Part of it, too, is maintaining our perspective. I remember when my son and daughter were young.
Occasionally, one of them would be upset about something that seemed very inconsequential to me. I would then say, “I’m sure the children who are starving would love to have your problems.” I always enjoyed the look of utter surprise on their faces, as they realized that whatever was bothering them was pretty minor compared to not having enough to eat. They would regain their perspective in an instant and suddenly everything would seem better to them.
Tony and I have the same goal we have always had: to help create an enlightened planetary civilization. As we celebrate the 15th year of our Wellness Expo, we appreciate that we have so much to be thankful for. We continue to be grateful to be part of such a wonderful community of like-minded people, who care about others and who offer valuable products and services. We are excited to be adding a Wellness Expo in Fort Worth this summer to expand our services to our community. We are pleased to be working with Dena Fife on this show. We feel the world can benefit from a focus on wellness now, perhaps more than ever before. We hope you will join us April 18-19 at our Wellness Expo at the Addison Conference Centre, as well as August 8-9 at our Fort Worth Wellness Expo® at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.
Love & Light,
