“Beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.” – Annie Dillard
Sometimes its easier to see the ugly truth – all of the pain, suffering, and bad behavior, along with our fears, can be overwhelming.
& whether that comes from the media we consume, the people we surround ourselves with, or our own sense of cynicism it makes for a very small and dark world to try and live in.
It becomes easy to forget that for all the ugliness there are stories and moments of true compassion.
Easier to forget still, is that YOU can chose to approach these problems by drawing on the “beauty and grace” rather than responding with disgust and anger.
When the news, worldly or personal, feels too dark or overwhelming ask yourself what YOU can do to bring more beauty and grace to the situation.
