Erin is giving away A SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY OF TANGLED UP (releasing Jan 17th) and swag
My hope for 2017 are that we all keep hoping. Some days it’s tough to see the good and it’s even harder to believe in things you can’t see, but here’s my plan– to keep hoping and to do my part to give others hope. We need more kindness in the world but kindness doesn’t just happen. It’s not enough to *feel* kindly toward others or to *think* kind thoughts, we have to BE kind. We have to be actively kind to other people. That means action. That means I need to smile more and be more patient and be more helpful and be more generous and reach out to other people and DO what I can to make the world a better place. When it’s hard to feel hope and kindness and love, I think we have to go out and be part of creating hope and kindness and love. So that’s my plan for 2017– to BE kind and to BE hopeful and to help spread that around.
Two of my favorite quotes that I have by my computer and in my planner for 2017 are:
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. –Desmond Tutu
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. –Bradley Whitford
I love quotes! I always have– I had journals filled with them even as a teenager. So share a favorite quote with me!
