It's Okay Not to Remember
For those feeling a little uncomfortable with all the memorializing of 9/11 today, please know it’s okay not to feel bad.
It’s okay not to immerse yourself in the memory of that day.
It doesn’t mean you’re not patriotic. It doesn’t mean you don’t care. And it doesn’t mean you’re in denial.
It means you know the power of your focus. And that you are – indeed we all are – best served when you focus on what you want more of.
And if you do feel a sadness, if you are immersed in the memory of those events, that’s okay, too.
But for those who check themselves because it’s not appropriate to be chipper today, or think that it’s politically incorrect not to be solemn or angry – it’s okay to let that go.
Even though a tv network took heat today for not giving the anniversary the commemoration it deserves, we deliberate creators know we don’t fix the unwanted stuff by dredging up and reveling in negative memories.
We get what we focus on; and that’s reason enough to find an excuse to smile – no matter what day it is. It doesn’t mean we don’t value freedom; it doesn’t mean we don’t love those who are struggling with it.
It means we care about how we feel, and we know there isn’t ever a good enough reason to purposely make ourselves feel bad.
If a law of attraction savvy person felt inspired to honor the day, there are certainly ways to do it that inspire feelings of appreciation, harmony and expansion.
In fact, maybe you have some tips for how you celebrate an event or anniversary that might otherwise be occasion for sadness? Would love to hear them in the comments if you care to share.
