Close your eyes and imagine the kind of world you would like to see.  What is it like?

 ** This writing prompt is from Abundance Blog at Marelisa Online, one of my favorite blogs (http://abundance-blog.marelisa-online.com/2009/09/11/119-journal-prompts-for-your-journal-jar/)!!! ** 

When I close my eyes and imagine my personal utopia, it is filled with sunlight soaking my shoulders, true love surrounding me, and peace all around.  This world is absent of all pain and unhappiness. 

While I know that pain and hurt are part of life, the type of world I would like to see is accepting of everyone just for who they are.  We all come from such unique circumstances and backgrounds.  If we only reminded ourselves of this before judging others, we just might be more accepting of one another.  This is what true peace means to me.

When I speak of true love surrounding me, I am not necessarily speaking of romantic love, but unconditional love.  The type of love that a parent has for his or her child.  The type of love between a couple who know they were put on this earth to be with one another.  The love of which I am speaking holds no bounds or limits.

This is my world…
