Our opinions and beliefs develop through what we experience in life. Then we either decide to put meaning to them or learn more about why things are the way they are, and take a stance from there.
Welcome to 3rd Thursdays, a quick-read monthly newsletter for the 3rd Thursday of every month to help make room for more abundance.
A couple weeks ago I published a Facebook post based on the presidential oath to office and the preamble of the constitution. The post was based on historical documentation and beckoned the question, "Does the rhetoric of our nations leader support the oath to office and preamble, and does it unite or divide the country?" A yes or no question.
It had nothing to do with the pandemic or tensions of racial inequality, yet some responses became platforms to defend or argue political point of views.
I've had several interesting and respectful conversations with those on both sides since then. One of those conversations was among one of my great friends since Little League and we grabbed lunch the day following the post.
There is a lot to unpack from our great discussion but because we took the time to hear each other out, to seek to understand, we have more respect for each others point of view. He has a strong valid argument based on his experiences in life which I definitely appreciate and understand better.
We agreed, had I not posted this conversation never would've happened. We reconnected on many levels that go all the way back to our childhood. Lots of good stuff. It was beautiful
My challenge for you on this 3rd Thursday is identify someone you care about but haven't spoken with in a while. Check in on them to let them know you care. They may be doing perfectly fine or may be dealing with unspoken issues. Sometimes a simple conversation can be a catalyst for change and clarity.
Finally, describe the feeling when that task has been accomplished and the space you've created in your mind to allow for more abundance. Find a reason to celebrate, even if it's a self affirmation, "Yep, I got this".
Thank you for your time. Stay tuned for the next issue of 3rd Thursdays on Thursday, July 16, 2020. If you're diggin' the vibe check out this story I learned about Creating Abundancefrom Joshua Trees.
