Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
On a serious and philosophical note on what I've learned, presented here is another series of things I've learned in no particular order or importance:
- Instead of running from problems, face them and be surrounded in an environment that nurtures talents and love.
- Indifference is as toxic as the opposition/catastrophe. Do something about it.
- Let's take time out of our day to love ourselves. We may be overly critical at times. Accept us as we are... humans.
- One's thoughts are the source of everything.
So my friends, I urge every one of you, whether it be the next natural disaster, the next religious conflict, the next shooting, or the next election, know that reading about it and sharing it with your opinion is not the only thing one can do. Do a good turn today- go volunteer at your favorite non-profit, smile and greet someone no matter how awkward it turns out, or when eating out and have extra, take it to go and give it away.
Until next time.
