SEEING

The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

– Henry David Thoreau

Some days are really trying and I find it difficult to look beyond the sadness and weariness I feel. So many people seem to think only of themselves and not understand the truth in the old saying that “what affects one of us affects all of us”. If we try to be kind and caring and understanding and empathetic we make this old world a better place, not just for ourselves, but for everyone. I know that I struggle more than ever these days to find the faith and the courage I used to easily access in myself. I just know that I must continue to try. To give up would be the end of me and the person I have spent my life struggling and working to be. I need to lean on others who too are walking this path and finding ways to see the light. There are good deeds being done every minute and people finding the courage to stand tall in the face of ugliness. They are like beacons to me. I pray that I may find my way again.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”

― Mahatma Gandhi
