Some days, weeks, months, and years are harder than others. This week it has been difficult to keep my cynicism, feelings of nothing will make much of a difference, and general pessimism at bay. There's no real cause, just the doldrums I suppose.
In an effort to adjust my attitude this week, I've looked for some motivating thoughts and found the following sage advice:
“Consciously or unconsciously, everyone of us does render some service or another. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and it will make not only for our own happiness, but that of the world at large.” - Mahatma Ghandi
"Life's most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?" - The Rev. Martin Luther King
"Goodness is the only investment that never fails." - Henry David Thoreau
“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
