The U.S. election is over. A new president will be sworn in this coming January. For the record, I’m writing this post prior to Election Day so don’t think the results swayed my opinion here. Over the last year or so, friends and family have become alienated because of politics. Harsh words were spoken or written on social media.
Whatever the results, I’m hoping we, as a nation and as people, can come together and heal. Let’s remember what really matters in life. Not money, not winning or losing, not political issues at all.
What really matters is love. Remember John Lennon’s Imagine? The lyrics still resonate just as much today, maybe more so. Throughout life, we are faced with decisions, options, choices. Imagine how much easier those moments might be if we tackled them with love. Without fear, ignorance, or bias. What if we saw ourselves and those around us through the lens of love?
Yes, I’m a romance writer. Love is my stock and trade. I truly believe there is no greater power, no better gift we have and can share than the aspects of love. Compassion, tenderness, patience, generosity, civility, mercy, and happiness all stem from love. All that’s good in the world begins and ends with love.
Join me. Choose love.
“And the world will live as one.” – John Lennon
