“As someone who has been on this planet for 58 years this lifetime, I can tell you that there have always been frightening world problems. If you focus upon these problems, you will miss out on joy. If you fear the future, you will think improving your life is futile. If you’re waiting until there’s a magical peaceful moment in the world, you will miss out on the many peaceful moments in your personal world.
Life goes by SO fast! Please don’t waste it on worry, anger, or fear. Make your life a testimony to solving problems, helping others, and squeezing the joy out of every moment.
This is not to say that we should passively condone abuses upon people, animals, or the environment. Do what you can to help the world, but please do so while enjoying your life. ” -Doreen Virtue
