I was grocery shopping when I heard the news about the tragic bombing in Boston at today’s marathon.
In addition to sending prayers and heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families, I wanted to offer you some guidance in case it also touched your heart with sadness.
My friend Marisa just reminded me of a favorite quote by Henry David Thoreau:
“One is not born into the world to do everything but to do something.”
This echoes a core belief I hope we share:
We’re not here on this Earth to tackle every challenge. We’re not meant to overcome every obstacle. We’re here to do one thing. That ONE thing is something that only we can do.
I’m a firm believer that if more people had the courage to listen to their heart and follow their love; if they gave themselves permission to heal and forgive those who have hurt them in the past; and, if they had the courage to fulfill their purpose to help make the world a better place…
If you just take care to do that one thing, then our world would be a more peaceful, safe and joyous place, for us and our animals.
Hope you feel the same way…
If you do, please leave a comment or offer your support below.
Be safe and know you are loved,
Dedicated to changing the world one animal lover at a time…
