A friend recently reminded me why we are called human beings
and not human doings.
If we get too caught up in the doing
at the sacrifice of forgetting about the being,
we run risk of missing beauty in the everyday.
May we not envy what others have
but instead embrace what life has given us.
May our sense of self rise by giving freely
instead of waiting for external approval to validate our efforts.
May we understand that a simple smile and a kind hello
mean more than a portfolio of perfection.
May we be
more than we do.
This is the fourth (#4) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!
