June, The Month of LOVE @ConexionFlorida 2021

 Babushka wrote in the June 2021 edition of Conexion a topic some may find controversial and provoking, but then again, the truth usually is... 

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls! 

June is the month of Love. Quee?? You thought that the month of Love was February? JU SO FONII!! Think about it. First, we have Father’s Day. Naturalmente there’s amor for our viejos and all those who were a father figure in our vidas. We think about those momentos that helped shape us. The disciplina, the direction, the Dad jokes, all part of our recuredos. All part of who we are. 

Who we are, is also the people around us. Who we are is the past, presente y futuro. And don’t we all want to be with those we love and love us in return? And here Babushka brings in Pride Month, June. What started off as demonstrations against police raids at the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village New York has turned into a yearly celebracion of acceptance and amor, love of others, love of self. 

That first Pride Parade was in 1969, and still strives to share the message. As stated on the Human Rights Watch website, “People around the world face violence and inequality—and sometimes torture, even execution—because of who they love, how they look, or who they are. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral aspects of our selves and should never lead to discrimination or abuse. We advocate for laws and policies that will protect everyone’s dignity. We work for a world where all people can enjoy their rights fully.”

Oh Beautifuls, to create such a world! As Louise Hay of Hay House Publishing said so perfectamente, “Create a world where it’s safe for us to love each other.  A world where we can be loved and accepted exactly as we are. That’s what you wanted when you were a child. When you were little you wanted to be loved just as you were, even if you were too skinny or too heavy, or if you weren’t smart enough or you weren’t like the person across the street. Maybe you were scared, but you still wanted to be loved. And it’s the same thing we’re all looking for now.”

Love. Amor. From padre, to our projimo, it is in our poder to live it, be it. This is BB’s wish for you Beautifuls. Junio, the midpoint of the year. Make this the point of gratitude for the past, its lessons and momentos, then look to the future for growth and understanding. For others, for ourselves. Y sobre todo y siempre, Babushka wishes you Love.

Babushka Besos a Todos.
