week 37 // 2016

self-care

She felt like doing her part to change the world, so she started by giving thanks for all the blessings in her life rather than bemoaning all that was missing from it. Then she complimented her reflection in the mirror instead of criticizing it as she usually did. Next she walked into her neighborhood and offered her smile to everyone she passed, whether or not they offered theirs to her. Each day she did these things, and soon they became habit. Each day she lived with more gratitude, more acceptance, more kindness. And sure enough, the world around her began to change. Because she had decided so, she was single-handedly doing her part to change it.

  1. That’s what I’m talking about. Change the world means changing ourselves with love. Every story counts and every shift, no matter how small the ripple, can create everlasting waves. Thanks for sharing this!
