Who we become

Who we become

“Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.” ~Barbara Geraci

While it can be helpful to be aware of how our past may have influenced us, we do ourselves a disservice when we allow those circumstances to limit us. We alone are responsible for the people we become, and it is up to us to choose who that will be. Change is always possible.

To bear fruit

To bear fruit

“Just as the trees, if they have not stood before the winter’s storms cannot bear fruit, so it is with us.” ~Amma Theodora

Our muscles require exercise to remain strong, and physical therapy facilitates the body’s healing. Likewise, life’s challenges strengthen our spiritual, emotional, and psychological “muscles” to keep us strong, growing, and healing.

Serving the world

Serving the world

“We can be of service by bringing some kindness, care, groundedness, and balance to those around us.” ~Sebene Selassie

In a world so filled with war, pain, and disasters, it’s easy to feel helpless to make any difference at all. I keep reminding myself that any difference I want to make starts right here with how I treat the people around me.
