“Love is the crowning grace of humanity, the holiest right of the soul, the golden link which binds us to duty and truth, the redeeming principle that chiefly reconciles the heart to life, and is prophetic of eternal good.”
“Strange things blow in through my window on the wings of the night wind, and I don’t worry about my destiny.”
— Carl Sandburg
Don’t worry about destiny. It is beyond our reach, and it can be overwhelming. Instead, slow down, take a deep breath, and focus on this moment. In this day, in this hour, in this minute, pay attention and be present. And then consciously choose to do something meaningful, something beautiful, something loving, something constructive — however small it may be. It is the cumulative effect of these choices over time that create a valued destiny. Legacy is built one brick at a time. It is built by showing up every day, by paying attention, and by consciously infusing your time and space — your words, your thoughts, and your actions — with optimism, creativity, gratitude and love.
