What Kind of World Do We Live In?

Stop. 

Have you ever taken a moment to consider how materialistic we can sometimes get?  When we go out into society and are constantly being surrounded by alluring merchandise; how many times do we think ‘I want that’, ‘I’d be happier if I had that’, and ‘That will complete me.’  Instead of spending our time thinking about where to dump our hard earned savings, we should be thinking more about how to love our neighbour, improve ourselves, and make the world a better place. 

So live freely.  Laugh more often.  Do kind deeds. Love until you cannot love anymore because each and every second that we are alive, we are given the power to chose how we are going to use it.  Why waste it by being materialistic? 

Before the glorious radiance of the kingdom, guilt melts away, and
transformed into kindness will nevermore be what it was.
—  Marianne Williamson
When you wake up, wake up with determination and gratitude that more opportunities are waiting. Each and every day is a gift, and another chance for us to make a positive impact.
