  • Something I’ve seen shared from the many pages of reddit (meaning I have no idea where it comes from initially):

    “today my anthro professor said something kind of really beautiful:

    “you all have a little bit of ‘I want to save the world’ in you, that’s why you’re here, in college. I want you to know that it’s okay if you only save one person, and it’s okay if that person is you.”

    In other words… if writing, reading, hoping, dreaming brings peace to YOUR heart, then please, keep doing it. When you have peace, you radiate it to those both physically around you as a person and those from farther away who discover your words. We all wonder and worry if what we’re doing will have any impact, any point. If it saves just you, it already does. But believe me… I truly think it’s done more than that.

    It’s hard to understand how you can be at the top of the game when you feel so lousy, wonderwoman, but I am so glad you’re writing and sharing it with us. Reading this makes me think you have a book waiting for your blog pages to fill it up and send it out in the world. And because I think this is inspiring for anyone trying to do their work in discouraging times, I’m sharing it. Sending you healing thoughts and light and love.
