From Where We Stand

You must look within for value, but must look beyond for perspective. ~Denis Waitley

Is it the backdrop of life which makes us stand out, or are we set apart by what we hold within?

We are all we encompass through our lifetime. Our experiences are colorful threads connecting with our responses to life situations which weave the stories within our tapestry.

As we share our stories our lives intertwine. We find our worth in ourselves and in others. We learn to see life through new perspectives. We grow as individuals and prosper in a community of love.

May we not be afraid to speak our own truths nor hear divergent truths.

May we respect the stories and perspectives of one another.

May we each learn to use our experiences to support others.

May we love others enough to see life through their eyes.

May we learn to connect the dots between our stories to fill the book of life.

  2. Our experiences are colorful threads connecting with our responses to life situations which weave the stories within our tapestry. That is a beautiful sentence. The odd thing about perspectives is that they seem to constantly change, depending on those life situations!
