Stand tall, stand strong, and remember love is the answer. There's no need to be afraid of the future even when we do not have all the answers. Instead of allowing fear to enter our minds, bodies, and souls. Let us remember to stand together and be bold. Be bold in all that you do and most of all, be bold with love. Remove the hate that is caused by confusion, for it will become worse till there are no more solutions. Let us not become self-destructive with feeling and being afraid. But let us hold each other up because we know that love is on the way.
Don't you see?
Love is the only way.
Like a flower, we're planted on this earth to grow. To become beautiful the way God made us. Nothing comes easy in life, and neither does growth. It becomes uncomfortable because you outgrow people or situations around you. Which makes you feel alone. But that's okay. God wants to work on you when you're by yourself. We tend to listen and hear Him better that way. You won't be on this journey alone for long. Just accept your process, and discover your purpose. If God has provided a purpose for the flowers, then He has provided a purpose for your life. Take the time to find out what it is... and GROW. Much Love - Racquel Bianca John 🌸 #PurposelyYou

Why do we (Humans) tend to fear what we don't know/understand? Is it that it’s a part of who we are as humans, or are we taught to fear what we don't know/understand. I thought about this as I watched this past election unfold. It was baffling and slightly uncomfortable seeing the behaviors and reactions of people’s happiness and disappointments. All of a sudden NO ONE cared about each other’s differences. Our differences and opinions are what make us unique human beings. With that said, I highly disagree with the bullying, hate, disrespect, racism, and negativity that I have witnessed in these past few months. What shocked me the most was seeing children partake in the same negativity as the adults. I realized, in that very moment, that fear, just like hate, is taught. Children are the purest most precious human beings on this planet, and to see that taken away from them was heartbreaking. How could we behave in such a way? This type of behavior is teaching the children, OUR FUTURE, that this is how you should act when people are different from you. What we need to show them is LOVE. Show them that love is the answer. Teach our future how to respect and understand each other's differences. That if we come together we can make a difference together. Last, but not least, we need to teach them PURPOSE. Once we know our purpose we no longer fear what we don't know or understand. Also, we respect people's differences, we see from a different perspective, and we give LOVE. Before we're able to give love, we must love who we are first. Let's all look in the mirror and ask ourselves this: Do I love myself?
Oh you got to remember the love,
You know that love is a gift from up above
Share love, give love, spread love
Measure, measure your life in love.
(RENT, Seasons of Love, Jonathan Larson)
Bravery will empower someone else to get through their tough days. My advice to you is to share your story. I know, at times we may think, “Who will understand me?” Or “No one will understand me.” But you will never know if you don't try. Besides, someone might surprise you and see things from your perspective for once.
