|Ma holds my hand|
Like a shot, I suddenly felt that resenting my family was not serving me or my mom. Ego filled with negative emotion was my personal enemy which fueled resentment that built upon itself. I spiraled into my own abyss of self pity. I felt a painful loneliness that was dark and scary. I had to get out of this place I found myself. I needed to be free from my self-inflicted bondage. How? I needed to change me, the only person on the planet that I can control.
I made a conscious effort and turned to the power of love. I got over myself. Focusing on my mom, I quickly realized that Ma wasn't going to leave this life until she knew everyone was OK, that her family was together again.
I forgave everyone, including myself. I began a refreshing new approach to life; live every day from a place of love.
Love is peace.
