I have read this many times over the years in different contexts but saw this and knew it needed to be on my blog. This is such a simple yet powerful message for each of us every day. It is so easy to get caught up in the moment and become frustrated, angry, and even hopeless. Especially with everything that is going on today with the economy, foreign conflicts, and the swine flu it is easy to think all is for nothing but that is certainly not the case.
I cannot agree more with something I read some time ago that stated, “We must act our way into a new way of thinking, not think our way into a new of acting.” If we hope to change things in our world, it will require us all to “proact” (not react) individually so that we can change things collectively.
