With so much turmoil going on around us it is often easy to lose sight of our ability to affect change in our own lives, much less in the world as a whole. Focusing on the big picture at times like these can add to a sense of overwhelm and keep us from showing up in a way we would like.
In the wise words of Jane Goodall:
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
Perhaps we cannot save the world today, or even just make it to the pasta pot before it boils over on the stove. But we can decide, in each moment, how we will show up.
The world needs each and every one of us to show up in our lives.
Be beautiful today, be you.
