I’m all about INclusion as opposed to EXclusion.
So while we live in a “baby-gated community,” it’s not to keep others out, it’s to keep our big dog, Willa, from wandering freely as she’s inclined to do at this time of year. And to keep Luna, our granddaughter, from joining her.
I’m about sharing our similarities and celebrating our differences.
I’m about crossing cultural, language, social, and economic barriers to build community cohesion, understanding, acceptance, and peace.
I’m about celebrating our shared humanity.
What are you about?
Excellent dear but plan ur trip to india please.
Bindu — When the time is right, I most definitely will 🙂
Amen to that, sister! 💖
Fatima — Woohoo! 👏👏👏
Nicely put, Laurie; I’m with you on all you mentioned, including the invaluable baby gate. And, I’m also about listening to my body, for it speaks to me.
Janet — Listening to our bodies is some of the best and most valuable communication out there! 🙂
I just tweeted this, a shared sentiment. Because I’m on the patio, maybe the birds heard it too.
Marian — I’m a believer that not much gets past birds 🦅
I am about getting far away from egotistic narcissistic people.I am all about modesty and humility,
Roamer — I agree. Modesty and humility are two of the best human characteristics. We would all do well to nurture and cultivate them.
I am about celebrating it too! Someone we all know has been on a Tweet rage this morning, creating divisions once again. Therefore, even more so, a big YES to celebrating our shared humanity!
WildflowerWomen — Cheers to celebrating our shared humanity 🎊
I am all about peace and harmony – unless you push my buttons. I am about tolerance – unless you’re being incredibly dense and stupid. I am about being human, but trying to be the best kind of human I can be.
Carol — Here’s to not pushing anyone’s buttons (especially on purpose), and to learning as much as we possibly can so that we’re knowledgeable.
You got that right!
Yes those aspects… plus, finding the mystery in an ordinary day. All the best as always Laurie.
Terrill — Cheers to finding mystery in an ordinary day! 🎉
I follow your lead, Laurie. I think the world is made stronger when we share our truths.
Leanne — Truth makes for a great foundation 🙂
With you on your “abouts” and for myself I would add, I’m about compassion, equity, justice for all, possibilities … and bringing forward peace and love from my hippie years!
Audrey — I love your additions (you hippie, you!) 🙂
I agree with what you say.
Neil — Yaaaaay! 🙂
Diversity makes us so much better. Good thoughts and now including Nature for earth day celebrations
Patricia — Yes. And yaaaaay for the inclusion of Nature to celebrate Earth Day. Woohoo!
Laurie, I would say I am about Stewardship. Not only of our land that feeds and provides for us, but for the people or persons given to you to care for. Setting standards for children, living a decent life to lead by example. Be the font of Decency for the next generation. I don’t always meet my own standards and that’s alright, ain’t nobody keepin’ score. Or as my daughter Cameron quoted back to me as we were packing for the new house, ” Leave a place better than you found it”.
Sandi — Stewardship. I second the motion. And yes, leaving a place better than you found it.
What a boring world this would be if we were all the same. I love the diversity of our world. Inclusion is what it is all about.
Darlene — Amen siSTAR! ⭐
I believe we are all the same under the color of our skin.
Rose — Amen siSTAR! ⭐
I agree! The differences between people make life interesting! I love watching movies with subtitles so I can hear a different language.
KKessler — Oh my gosh, I’m a subtitle fan, too! 🙂
I couldn’t agree more . Without a shadow of a doubt . I’m with you one hundred percent . What can I say …YES! YES! YES!
Cherry — Hooooooraaaaaaay! 🎉
We were dog-sitting on the weekend, so for a short time we were a gated community too. I like what you’re all about: All Is One!
Arlene — Oh how fun, to be able to take a weekend to PAWS and refresh yourselves.
Yes, indeed. All is One 🙂
I’m much about the same things, Laurie. Twenty years ago I studied a book in a small group setting focused on “Cultural Creatives,” which included people with the same desires and aims as you outline here, just a bit more detailed. I have recently started answering the question that comes to me from time to time about my political party associations with the statement, “I am a Cultural Creative.” That stops people a bit cold, but it reminds me of what’s important in my life. Love your doggy/baby gate! 🙂
Debra — It’s good to stop and think and make the necessary adjustments to stay on course. Great reminder. Thank you! 🙂
What am I about? Right now – communication. I’m trying some new things – new podcast, and a book out – finally.
It’s tiring though.
Blackwatertown — Communication is powerful. It’s the currency of life 🙂
I am about replacing tolerance with love 🙂
Inese — I love it! 🙂
Right now I’m all about celebrating the garden…it’s a lot of work right now…and the work is joy.
TimelessLady — “The work is the joy.” I love it! 🙂
I too am all about INclusion and I find myself too often pulled into political discussions on the matter. I am no fan of our WH occupant but I’ll say no more here and just stand by my principals! 🙂
Sam — Amen! 🙂
