Life is created by a series of ups and downs, successes and missteps, gains and losses, and interpersonal connections that may last anywhere from a day through a lifetime. People, places, and things are forever changing and we can choose to embrace or resist the natural progression of each passing day. Individually and collectively, we can integrate some profound yet simple words to live by through daily actions and gestures. In turn, our interactions and experiences can become more fulfilling and enriching within the world in which we live—both internally and externally. The thread of being human is what binds us together with various levels of sympathy and empathy—truly one is never alone. We can decide how much to give and receive, accept and reject, and how much we allow ourselves to open up or stay closed.

So many times we get lost in the shuffle of what others think about us and how we can please them to obtain approval from outside sources. But if we take a step back and realize in fact it is equally if not more important to consider what we think of ourselves and how we can meet our needs, we find balance. Once balance is found, it can be maintained through the evolution of our of our daily growth. With a gentle reminder of how to treat ourselves and others along with how we deserve to be treated, we can make small adjustments that can bring great changes…with the intention for the better. Why complicate life more than it has to be? It can actually be quite simple.
