After watching the news yesterday morning, I was feeling discouraged about all the disharmony on our planet. The discord felt overwhelming, so I headed out into nature.
While wandering, I spotted these two flickers on a bridge…they drew close together, parted, and then drew close again. Over and over. In their movements, they appeared to be dancing. So much grace and harmony.
Then I had a realization. Yes, there is discord in our world, but there is also harmony. But harmonious events aren't considered newsworthy.
I realized I witness harmony all the time. The couple taking a walk and holding hands, the man smiling and holding the door for a stranger, children playing together in the park…so many harmonious interactions.
I’ve heard it said that if you focus on something, it will grow and expand.
It's time to focus on harmony...
I’m grateful to the flickers for the inspiration.
