Love. Not fear.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it—always.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Refuse to let a non-stop cycle of negativity and bad news divert your attention from all the good in the world.

Remember your friends. Your family. And the kindness of strangers.

Make note of those doing good, acting selflessly, or going out of their way to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.

The world is not just war, hate, and conflict. It’s not just people only looking out for their own best interest at the expense of anyone who crosses their paths.

Refuse to be manipulated into thinking the world is mostly made up of people seeking conflict. Because it’s not.

The answer to the world’s problems is not less love. It’s more.

Look for and be the good in the world.

Spread light, not darkness.

Love. Not fear.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” — Lao Tzu

The time it takes to provide sincere appreciation and authentic encouragement is far eclipsed by the amount of time it lingers in the mind of the recipient.

Sincere appreciation and authentic encouragement

The world appears to be increasingly populated by people who only look out for their own needs — and often at the expense of others.

“I don’t have time.”, “I forgot.”, “It’s not my thing.”, “I had no idea you wanted help.”, “I didn’t think there was anything I could do.”

All entirely reasonable. And yet, the people who want to support others somehow find a way.

You may have very little to give, but the power of a kind word and encouragement shouldn’t be underestimated.

The time it takes to provide sincere appreciation and authentic encouragement is far eclipsed by the amount of time it lingers in the mind of the recipient.

Being a supportive person means more than simply offering help because it’s convenient or with the hope of receiving something in return. It means helping others even when it isn’t always easy — although it often is.

If you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by genuinely supportive people who would do anything to help you, cherish them.

They’re a rarity.

And if you want to be that kind of person for someone, don’t hesitate.

True value

Excerpt from: Today is day one.

The more that you incorporate things that you truly value into your life — from knowledge to skills to people to activities — the more value you not only bring to your own life, the more value you bring to the people and places you encounter on a daily basis.
