Bedtime Prayer

I don’t pray, but if I did, my most fervent supplication would be that I always have better things to do with my life-force, energy, intellect, and emotions than to use them in denigration, criticism, and cruelty. Certainly we can all agree that the world is hard enough a journey for everyone, let us not add to it, rather, oughtn’t we to spend our time here raising one another up, encouraging, embracing what is worthwhile, and, in those cases where we feel someone or something is not to our liking, give the benefit of the doubt, perhaps, choosing discretion and silence?

Better to err on the side of kindness, I think. Much.
