This morning I realized that this is my last blog, at least for this year, on acknowledgement. I have reflected on acknowledging feelings, that we are works in progress, and our need to spend time with our Higher Power and ourselves. As I was writing in my gratitude journal, I realized that it was a space where I acknowledged the goodness in self, others, and the world.
Listening to the news, which I try not to do anymore, there is such a focus on creating an aura of fear, evil, corruption, and negativity. It is only when one turns to sources such as http://Upworthy.com or http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/ that one gains exposure to stories which inspire, create environments where people can empower themselves, and promote goodness in the world.
