One Thing You Can Do for the World Today

IMAGINE a world where you have…

…an endless number of ways to feel alive…


…trillions of reasons to never be bored…


…an infinite number of beautiful things to create…


…already so many beautiful things to behold…


…and 7 billion crazy characters to play along with.


As you know, this is your world.

It’s filled with more potential for pleasure, love, glory, beauty and bliss than can be comprehended.

It even surprises you with misfortune so you can experience the full range of your explosive emotions, and so the good things are that much sweeter.

Even better, nothing great comes easily.  That would be hopelessly boring.  You have thrilling hurdles to overcome around every corner in order to achieve greatness in this world.

The icing on the cake is that it doesn’t go on forever.  How special would anything be if you had an eternity to achieve it?  How precious would life be?

This world – this life – is amazing!  It is perfect just the way it is.

So please, stop taking life for granted.  Instead, focus on being a force for love, for change, for questioning what is right, for re-questioning when you must, and for the diehard belief in the goodness of people.

Go forth today and…

  • “It even surprises you with misfortune so you can experience the full range of your explosive emotions, and so the good things are that much sweeter.”

    I can’t express how true that this is for me. After over a decade of infertility and loss, I am finally a mom. I just wrote a post on how much I appreciate those little moments of parenthood that others might take for granted. I appreciate every little detail because I thought I might never get to experience these things. I am like Charlie in the chocolate factory. It’s an amazing journey. You have, and continue to give me so much inspiration.

    I love this blog. Thank you!

  • Loved the images that you chose to share, so full of emotion and action. The last image was very moving. Don’t think I’ll forget that one for a long time, haunting almost.

  • Beautiful. Very timely for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere heading into the dreary months of winter..

  • “Endless ways to feel alive” and “trillions of reasons to never be bored”. Initially I thought this post was going to be about how we trade feeling alive for simply not being bored… because TV and cheeseburgers are easier. Ha! Would have been interesting to explore that too, but great post anyways. We live in a huge world, let’s make it better :)
