“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”– William James


The city of Chicago hosted the 20th Lollapalooza this past weekend. The music lovers take over the city. Many people would argue the positive and the negative aspect of rush of people in the city for 3 days. I was one that escaped the madness and retreated to my hometown to reconnect with some girlfriends from high school. I decided it was time to celebrate and start a LOVEAPALOOZA.

As I sat around with my friends we recalled the times…war in Viet Nam, start of the sexual revolution, drug culture, catholic subculture and being smack dab in the middle of it all. I think every generation has fears for their kids…and thinks the world is” going to hell in a hand basket.” Some things never change.

Some times all it takes is changing of our minds to look at all the good there is in the world instead of all the “horrible” things the media feeds us 24/7. I looked around a table where we all had incredible parents that loved us but got all up in our “business” if we got out of line as did all the other parents of my friends. At that same table if I added up the years of marriage in the group…it is 228 years. Wowzer! Many of us had 6 plus kids in our family growing up. Sometimes it is good to look back and give thanks for what we had and have instead of what we don’t have or wish we had had. We all have our own private and personal battles we are working on or have overcome and can still come together after many years to laugh, share a meal, and remember what it was that brought us all together as friends.

Maybe it is the beauty of living life and appreciating it ALL. It’s good to travel back in time to remember with others that lived it with us. I here by declare this the first day of “LOVEALOOZA”…. go out and love up on someone and keep that attitude in check…looking for the LOVE…not the hate or flaws. Are ya with me?!!!!!
