"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."
I am an an avid reader of the morning paper.....yes...I hold the paper in my hands and sit down with my coffee and have a little time in the morning to see what is going on in the world and my community.
Sometimes the news is "good" but more often than not it is "not so good."
When I'm finished reading I often ponder....how can I help this troubled planet and the people on it.....I'm just one individual and we are talking about "MAJOR" issues.
After reflecting on this a while this is the conclusion I came to.....all of us on the blogging bandwagon are attempting to make this world a kinder, prettier, gentler place. Oh we have our bad days and sometimes just need to vent...but for the most part....posts are positive, uplifting, just telling our day to day stories or showing our wonderful creativity. Unlike facebook or twitter....posts are almost always filled with "beauty".....that DOES COUNT FOR SOMETHING.
Here is a recent horoscope reading for Libra and it applies to all of us...I believe....
"Find creative inspiration. It is not an indulgence so much as a way for you to save the world." I don't know if it will save the world....but I do know that anything beautiful is worth seeing and will make one's "heart sing".
Big hugs to each and every one of you today and everyday.
