Compassion Is Radical

Everyone is trying to get ahead. Everyone is trying to put everyone else in their proper place. We are so busy trying to prove our position on right and wrong that we have lost sight of doing anything else. We want someone to blame, but we're all too blame. We're all flawed, and we're all doing our part to bring things down. Slow down, and remember, that other person is as lost as you are. A little compassion can go a long way. Wouldn't you rather someone offer you a hand up than a foot down? If we start with empathy, we can build a whole new world where there is no need for blame in the first place.

No Act Of Kindness

The single greatest thing that can improve our world is kindness. The single most lacking thing from our current world is kindness. The math is pretty simple. Look around you and see where you can add kindness to the world today. If you make that choice more often than not, you are guaranteed to improve your own world. If you can inspire those around you to do the same, you'll change the world.

Survival Guide

We learn the most from the times that are hardest. Unfortunately, we are frequently not at our best for learning while the times are hardest. The lessons are there but we don't see them because we are too busy just trying to survive. There will come a time, though, when you stand upon a plateau, when that struggle is behind you, and you can look back and appreciate what you accomplished and realize what you learned along the way. When you reach that point, see if you can learn to tell that story. Someone else is walking behind you, through the same harsh terrain, and your survival may be exactly the map they need. Together, we can keep moving forward, and together we can make a better world.

Keep Moving Forward

Life is going to knock you down. An easy life, by itself, has never paved the way for great accomplishments. You may prepare to fight back, and sometimes that will be useful and necessary, but your fight won't determine how far you go. Ultimately what matters, when you struggle against the difficulties that life may present, is your ability to get back up and take that next step forward. Keep standing and keep moving. If you can do that, you can do all that you need to do. Keep moving forward.

Failed My Way

Never forget, when starting on a new path, that you are going to make mistakes. It will not be unusual if you make many mistakes. Mistakes are not inherently bad things. You can learn more from a mistake than from a success. The important thing is that you do learn. Listen to the lesson, bring it into yourself, and make a different mistake next time. Each mistake can bring you a new lesson, and each new lesson can bring you closer to what you are truly trying to be. Don't fear your mistakes. Learn from them and keep going.

The Truth You Cling To

We often believe we know more than we do, and we hold onto that knowledge tightly because our ego becomes bound up with what we know. It can be good to stick to your guns, to not be swayed by every argument that comes along, but it can also prevent you from learning anything new if you aren't careful about how you do it. Your beliefs can be an anchor, but never forget that an anchor has an entirely different meaning to a swimmer lost at sea than to a boat properly used. Never cling so tightly to a belief that you cannot let go if it turns out to be detrimental. Even a boat's anchor has a release mechanism, just in case.

We Are Free

It is an easy thing to hold on to grievances, to wear them as both badge and armor. We often think this will somehow protect us from future harm when what it really does is prevent us from having future experiences. That armor you think you're wearing is broken and shoddy. It's not protecting you. It's only weighing you down. Try to recognize when your harmful past is sticking around because you're holding onto it, and do what you can to let go. You will appreciate the newfound freedom if you can.
