I have been in deep thought today about One World One Heart.
It is a world wide blog event, made up of artists & all types of art. Dolls, of course, , jewelry, mixed media, paintings, sculpture, miniatures, well, you get the idea. It's a fun time. Over 900 participants, that's A LOT! Each artist chooses to have a give away, some offer more than one give away.
I have been thinking today about what to create.
But as I typed out One World One Heart, I began to think about what that would be like.
If all the world thought with the same heart. First, and foremost there would be LOVE.
This stops me in my tracks, my mind can't even get my thoughts around that idea.
So I have to reduce it down to, what that would mean personally to me.
Does it mean, I wouldn't have gotten angry at the older man who stole my grocery cart at Costco, and when I gently reminded him that he was leaning on my cart, he told me I was full of crap?
How about while working as a nurse, there is a nurse I work with that ignores patients needs,
neglects to pass on important info, definitely not a team player, and if anyone confronts him, he won't talk to you for a week! If I had more love for him, would it make me less angry? Or, perhaps if he had more love, he would not neglect his patients, would be a team player, and we would all work together in harmony. (note of sarcasm here)
This reminds me that you can still be angry and love, there is such a thing as righteous anger.
And that's okay.
