My Thoughts On Florence
Environment changes outside of our control, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and dangerous weather conditions can leave people feeling overwhelmed, frightened, helpless, confused, and angry, especially when the realty of loss is catastrophic. But they also make others courageous, grateful, heroic, appreciative, and thankful.
When our basic needs (physiological, safety, belongings, dignity, and self-esteem) are threatened, there is a wave of human emotions for all people and creatures on earth, including plants, trees, aquatic life, animals, minerals, the food chain, property, infrastructure and the environment. For members and readers of ActiveRain with friends and family effected by Hurricane Florence, it creates a kinship of hearts and minds. Behind every cloud, there is a silver lining. It doesn't matter if you are a real estate agent, insurance representative, someone in sales, homeless, rich or poor, educated, or not, we are put on this earth to help others. I truly believe all lives matter.
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
