Compassionate Living

Audio Version of Every Day Hope Message:

This day is a new, fresh beginning. It is full of opportunities for joy, laughter, forgiveness and compassion.

The world around you is starved for kindness; it thirsts for any semblance of empathy. Hooked to an intravenous drip of negativity, fear and pain, the world bustles through life and misses countless moments to live with joy.

Seek out these moments, these individuals, these situations that need your compassion. Give freely, lovingly and without expectation of return and feel the joy you’ve just injected into a wounded world. You cannot give compassion without also receiving it yourself. To give is to also receive.

You may feel exhausted by life, your own pain bubbling just beneath the surface. Give compassion anyway. Feel the joy that radiates from sharing a part of yourself without hesitation. Feel your own worries subside, even if it’s just for that moment.

Give, love and empathize freely. So many beside you need that small token of compassion today. Be the light and the hope you wish to see in the world.

be the light and the hope
