Choose to soften

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.” ~Pema Chödrön (from The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times)

Which will you choose? I hope you’ll choose to let life soften you. Not only does the world needs more kindness and openness, but you’ll also find greater happiness that way.
