Compassion. It’s not just a word. It’s a way of being. It’s not just a concept. It’s love in action. Compassion for our shared humanness. Compassion for those who are struggling. Compassion for the courage it takes to make it through. Compassion for our own healing. Unity begins with compassion. I see me in you, I see you in me, and I know we can live from love together. (~an excerpt from 'Spiritual Graffiti')

One morning, she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking down the middle because they didn't have the guts to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn't bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn't a word but a lifestyle. It was this day that her life changed, and not because of a man or a job but because she realized that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket.

Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien
