Your assignment

Anything you do from the soulful self will help
lighten the burdens of the world. Anything.
You have no idea what the smallest word,
the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion.
Be outrageous in forgiving.
Be dramatic in reconciling. Mistakes?
Back up and make them as right as you can, then move on.
Be off the charts in kindness.
In whatever you are called to,
strive to be devoted to it in all aspects large and small.
Fall short? Try again.
Mastery is made in increments, not in leaps.
Be brave, be fierce, be visionary.
Mend the parts of the world that are "within your reach."
To strive to live this way is the most dramatic gift
you can ever give to the world.

~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

What a wonderful life we have been given.
Let's love it. Happy New Year!
