Are you one of the 10 million people watching, and loving, this new TV show?
I wake up with the theme, message and/or metaphor in my head and heart when it's time to blog.
Today it was This Is Us.
Have you noticed the sheer number of topics covered each week that focus on acceptance? Divorce, ethnicity, race, adoption, death, abandonment, sexual orientation, body image, wealth, poverty, addictions? And somehow, through it all, the characters find and demonstrate acceptance.
I know, I know, TV is a fantasy world, right? But what if WE took our cue from this fantasy? I mean, we do it all the time, don't we? Often emulating and revering our pop, film, sports and even the "15 minutes of fame" news stars?
What if we adopted the notion that "this is US" and not "this is US against THEM?" Drop the blame that everything is "their" fault?
What if we all realized that we are in this game together, and the sooner that we all accept each other for who we are, what we love, and what we believe the easier life will flow?
There is no right or wrong, only what YOU believe, love and trust. I, for one, am not going to tell you what you believe is wrong because I certainly wouldn't want you to tell me that what I believe is wrong.
So I'll accept what you believe as your truth and will continue to live mine.
Because This Is Us. I find no surprise that this "fantasy" show arrived when it did, and zero coincidence that us = U.S.
Live in Love,
