Good Saturday, dear reader. There’s no bigger myth out there than that we don’t have choices about how to see and interact with the world around us.
We most certainly do. These quotes may seem diverse, but they share this in common. They remind us to see the world through compassionate and inclusive eyes and ourselves as positive vehicles of change,
Working together, we can create a better world for ourselves and everyone else.
If you find yourself looking around wondering this in a situation, the situation may be waiting for you. You won’t be the hero of every situation and life, but sometimes your number is called and you’re the one the universe is counting on to think something, say something, and most importantly do something to shift the status quo in a new and positive direction.
Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you’re awesome!
