Joy is not a luxury

Joy is not a luxury

“Joy is not a luxury, it is not a privilege. It is a resilience-giving, life-giving birthright and we can’t call forth in the world something we don’t believe in and embody.” ~Krista Tippett

We act like joy is a luxury for when we have the time and space for it, but it’s so much more. It’s actually a powerful force that is not only life-giving for us, but also what fuels our resilience and our ability to make positive change in the world.

Make time for joy in your life today! You (and we) need more of it.

An instrument of peace

An instrument of peace

“The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.” ~Carlos Santana

How much do you prioritize owning an open heart? Do you act like it’s worth more to you than anything else you own?

How well are you able to be an instrument of peace? How much effort do you put into becoming that?

The world would be a better place if we all prioritized both of these so much higher than we do.
