“May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us." ...”
- Mother Teresa
I found this quote on the bulletin board of my yoga studio and it really struck a cord. When I got home I googled it to get it word-for-word and came across quite a few others that remind me of what's important in life and in ourselves.
“Love to be real, it must cost—it must hurt—it must empty us of self.”
“It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”
“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.”
“Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.”
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
Read. every. word. Take it to heart. I feel perspective coming back to me already...
