About The Power In You

A soul, like you, that believes in the amazing qualities we share. There are days I grow weary and frazzled from interactions I've had with others. And sure, there are times when I want to curse, yell and shake my fist at people. Let's face it - we are annoying, we get on each others' nerves, we pick, meddle, interfere and say things we later regret. But when we step back and bite our tongue, take a deep, deep breath and react with kindness despite the anger welling up within ... well, it's absolutely amazing what one tiny gesture can do. There is kindness all around us, but most importantly, there is a limitless, infinite amount within us as well.
