Float into the sky
Along the tops of the trees
Our shadows dance on the seas
Remember to breathe
She’s really something to me

For me, the meaning of life has always been about connections: with humans, with nature, with animals, with spirit, with myself. Those connections are all about love: loving and being loved. What else is there at the core of this incredible gift we have called life? When you mindfully love and are loved, everything else can happen naturally and easefully: gratitude, happiness, being your authentic self, making money by doing something you are passionate about, contributing to a healthier world…all the wonderful things that make up “the good life”.

Just wanted to share these two videos, one a “letter” from Kid President to a newborn. The second, a “letter” from a mother to her child. (Yes, it’s an ad, but it’s also a heartfelt poem from mama to babe.) Both are touching, simple and remind us that the world is an awesome and beautiful place full of love and wonder.

It’s not so much that people seem to always say the wrong thing, it’s that they don’t know what to say. And so they end up saying, or doing, nothing at all. Which is hurtful.

“If I share something difficult with you, I’d rather you say, ‘I don’t even know what to say right now, I’m just so glad you told me.’

Because the truth is, rarely can a response make something better. What makes something better is connection.”
