What’s important to you?
I’ve been thinking about that a lot today. I’ve been trying to compile a list of what I care about and what I truly think is important to put my energy towards.
I think that caring about and loving on everyone is so important. I think forgiveness is important. Embracing who you really and truly are is important to me.
I believe that using my energy and passion and life to help end world hunger is so incredibly important.
I think that developing real relationships with incredible people is important.
Today at work I was talking with a coworker and she was telling me that sometimes customers get a little snarky — and when you’re having an off day, the rude comments can sort of get to you. I told her that I don’t really noticed people’s shortness anymore because when it comes down to it: it’s just coffee.
And I think that thought process extends past being a barista at a coffee shop. Throughout my life, I’ve been a target for some painful words, I’ve gone through traumas and hurt, I’ve been the one doing the hurting, I’ve wished to be someone else…
A lot of this stuff happens because we allow ourselves to get so wrapped up in something that, in the long run, is so so unimportant.
But maybe that’s just me. To me, being so enthralled with life is important. I hope that you wake up and go to bed so full every single day. Full of what you’ve done that day, who you’ve interacted with, who you are…
I hope that you can take the time to figure out what is and isn’t important to you. So much energy is wasted on negativity. I hope that you can spare yourself from that.
I’ve said many times that I don’t hate anyone because I don’t want to use my energy for something so dark. I want my heart to be so busy loving on all people that there is no room or time for hate.
That is what is important to me. And I choose to embrace it.
