How do you see yourself?

I believe in the power of good but when I saw the news this morning about the fertilizer plant in Texas explosion it seemed more than I could bare. So much tragedy so close together. My mind is still trying to wrap around Boston and then there is another devastating story. I was struggling to see any good and thought it was pointless to post. It isn't that I just want to tell the good stories. That isn't it. I want to tell the truth. But I also aim to be proactive and to find something I can do about the issues. And here, I can't. I can't change Boston. I can't change Texas. I can't go back in time and make a difference. I feel utterly useless.

But then I saw this - Dove: Real Beauty Sketches. Check it out. I agree, we are each more beautiful than we think. And we are more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. Perhaps I can make a difference.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for positive messages in the world.
Daily Affirmation: I can make a difference.

  1. I saw that ad campaign and was actually moved by it too. I wish we could all take part in that little experiment. Women, especially, I think need to learn to look at themselves and others realistically. I think you are doing a great job with your blog and your example of how to live a good life. Keep it up! :)
