People are coming together to help one another.
In the face of difficult times, massive uncertainty, and some scary people assuming power, people are coming together to work with one another to show the world that we will not be intimidated.
Whether the topic is education, science, the environment, awful business practices, general politics, LGBTQ rights, separation of church and state or what-have-you, people are coming together like never before to stand up for the things they believe in. They are striving to change the conversation, and to make our world a better place.
We are seeing people taking a stand for more inclusion, for protecting our planet from those who do not care if they poison our air and water, for not discriminating based on race, sexual orientation, gender, religion or other differences, for affordable health care and the education of our children, and more. We are seeing people trying to build a better world rather than tear down what we have with no plan to create anything that’s better.
There are powerful forces wanting to divide us all. They want to make sure only a small group of people have power, wealth and influence, rather than spreading it to the masses. They have convinced many people that they will make their lives better, despite the only work they do benefiting a narrow, heavily biased and self-serving group. Snake-oil salesmen playing on the fears of the masses to convince them they will help, when most of the actions they intend to take will make their constituents’ situations even worse.
Rather than let them remain dominant, people are changing the conversation, and working to reach out to more and more groups, striving to work together to use inclusion, positive forces rather than negative to change the world for the better. People are taking actions as never before and participating in our system to improve it, to speak up and not allow the leadership to run all over us without being accountable. The positivity of these actions is incredible.
We are seeing that coming together to change the conversation and to help one another builds new bridges, opens new avenues of opportunity, and shows the people who would prefer us under their boots that we will not be doormats. We are coming together as never before to spread hope and overwhelm fear, and that is amazing positivity.
Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action. Knowing that people are working together to stand up for equality, freedom and other things that improve the world, we can take heart that we can change the conversation and work to better all of our lives. When we feel the positivity that comes from all the energy of so many working together to better our world, we each can empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
This is the one hundred fifty-eighth entry of my Positivity series. It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone. Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
