I'm grateful for the good laugh my family and I got last night over the hippie perception. I'm grateful that like me they find humor in that perception and label. I'm grateful to know that even within the different labels, I am at the core just me. I'm grateful to share my understanding and insights with those who are interested in hearing. And I'm grateful to not be offended when people are not open to hearing my point of view, as they have come down a different path, on a different journey, with different perceptions. I'm grateful to be married to someone who is in many ways my opposite and yet at the core very similar. I'm grateful for communication that allows us to understand each other and cross any bridges. Most of all, I'm grateful to be me and I'm grateful to laugh.
What perceptions do people have of you? Do they match your own? What perceptions might you have of others that they don't feel for themselves? How do you respond to these differences? May today bless you with acceptance and understanding. May you see that at the core we are all love. Have a beautiful day!
