Living in La-La Land

Taken by my super talented cousin Emily*

I have been told several times that I live in La-La Land.  Maybe I do but I like it here.

Its a land where…

  • Everyone is treated equally and not discriminated against because of religion, race, gender, age, education…
  • Our differences are celebrated, not ridiculed
  • Women support each other and hold each other up, we don’t tear each other down
  • We embrace our bodies, our curves, our straight lines, all of it…instead of feeling shame
  • People are not judged for their appearance but for their character
  • Everyone is able to pursue a career, job, calling, whatever that they want to do not whatever they are ‘supposed’ to do
  • Fear is no longer an option
  • Peace wins out over war
  • The news media covers the good stuff too
  • People on reality shows are no longer considered ‘celebrities’
  • Heroes are not sports figures or actors, but people who are doing good things for others, not to get famous, but to help others
  • Kindness is the norm
  • We really don’t care what other people think of us
  • Hate is no longer in the dictionary

Yes, I kind of like it here in La-La Land.  You are welcome to join me!

    Just found you through the Dancing Mermaid. I want to live in La-La Land:) Sometimes I’m almost there at home and at the yoga studio. Peace!

    I just found you through Swirly, but I noticed that Mccabe linked to you as well! You are one popular girl on the internet today. 🙂

    This post spoke to me because I live in la-la-land too. I think and write about nonviolence, and sometimes the things I put out there as wishes of my heart for this world and humanity I know will strike so many as naive. But then I think, “So what if they do?” I’d rather desire and work toward a better world than just assume it isn’t possible.

    Thanks for this post. I will be returning!
