Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it ~Gautama Buddha
Let’s face it, there seems to be so much negativity around us and in the world, at school, in the work place, and even at home. It can be challenging to maintain a positive outlook, but it is not impossible. We can choose to focus on the negativity and allow it to devour our spirit/energy, or we can choose to focus on the positive and be the change we want to see in the world — starting with you. An individual living this moment, on this planet, with purpose. What is that purpose?
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi
