My Ideal World In a Nutshell
My Ideal World Begins With Me
Have you ever taken a minute to visualize what your ideal world would be like? It isn't as easy as you might think. It's easier to think about what you don't like about the world you're living in.
But focusing on what you dislike will not bring about change. In fact, complaining consistently usually makes things worse. To complain is an act you create all by yourself. When you begin complaining about one thing, you attract negative energy and patterns making it easier to complain about more.
Don't confuse complaining with having a negative reaction, which is perfectly okay. Complaining can become addictive and the more you do it the harder it is to stop.
So, in my ideal world, I choose to stay away from complainers, and I'm also careful about any negative seed I may be on the verge of planting.
I really do prefer the "glass have full" type of people. Compassionate and caring personalities definitely have a place in my ideal world.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.~ Maya Angelou"
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Children, Animals and Unconditional Love
My ideal world is filled with animals. Our fur children can teach us all we need to know about love.
Puppy mills, animal abuse in any form, including slaughtering for food, is outlawed. Every dog and cat will have a safe, loving home.
My ideal world is safe and children run free and play without fear. Child abuse does not exist at all in any form. Bullying is unheard of and children are reared in light and love.
The only kind of love will be unconditional. You know what this kind of love is like. There are no conditions or limitations. Unconditional love allows us to love ourselves first and to love others asking for nothing in return.
Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.” ~ Herbert Ward
Five Favorite Quotes On Peace
Why do we fight instead of loving each other? I've been given many reasons why we fight, which are all unacceptable to my heart. I really think that peace comes from the soul and from living a moral life. In my ideal world, fighting is replaced by love and joy.
Inspirational Quotes always seem to bring me a certain feeling of peace. Here are five of my favorite quotes:
- All we are saying is: give peace a chance. John Lennon
- Permanent good can never be the outcome of untruth and violence. Gandhi
- When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. ~Jimi Hendrix, American Musician, Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter
- Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth. Menachem Begin
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie

Mother Nature and Her Children
We must never take Mother Nature for granted and always, always appreciate and protect her.
George Washington Carver said it best~
"Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.”
How anyone can enjoy a picnic in the living room of Mother Nature, then walk away leaving litter, is something I just don't understand. We don't throw left-overs, cans, bags and garbage on our own floor. When I see someone doing this, I walk over to their spot and without saying a word, clean everything up. Do actions speak louder than words? I think our actions hold a most powerful message. In my ideal world there is no litter.

Rejoice And Be At Peace
My ideal world is filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, everything healthy and plenty for all. No one would ever go hungry. Pure clean water is always available to quench the thirst. All food would be grown organically, of course.
There is music in the air, accompanied by laughter and delight. We dance to the rhythm of the ocean waves, the wind as it strolls through tree branches, and droplets of rain kissing each flowers waiting face.
In my world, I sing like an angel, uniting the heart with it's soul. My nimble and pain-free fingers dance withe touch of each piano key. At last I can play all 32 Beethoven Sonatas, the complete works of Bach, and every Chopin Prelude, with ease and accomplishment.
I am surrounded by children of all ages, colors, and forms. I live my childhood as I once dreamed it would be. I am again with my brothers and sisters . . . all of them. We rejoice and are at complete peace.

I'm Re-united With My Son
My ideal world is complete because I am with my family and friends. All those, so dear to me, including my beautiful son who has passed on, have re-joined me.
And last, but certainly not least, my ideal world connects me with all of my hub page buddies and friends, whom I have never met, except through their writings.
There is certainly more to mention ~ but for now ~ this is my ideal world in a nutshell.
