If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.
“I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. To stand for something, and to have made some difference that you lived at all.” —Leo Rosten
To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent people; to earn the approbation of honest critics, and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others, and to give of oneself; to leave the world a better place whether by a healthy child, a redeemed social condition, or a garden patch; to have lived your life with enthusiasm and to have sung with exaltation; and finally to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have been successful.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance…
I hope you dance…
From the song “I Hope You Dance”
