Today’s post is not my own. I was fortunate enough to read an article in National Geographic, this morning, by popular author, Anne Lamott. It has been a long time since I read something so inspiring and realistic on hope in dark times. I think most of you if not all, will find this article a keeper. (sadly you will encounter snippets and blocks of ads, but just keep scrolling past them.) It really is worth it and I had to pass it on.
This is about a five minute reading time. To go to the article, just click on the big bold title.
Here is a snippet that speaks to me.
We take the action—soup kitchens, creek restoration, mentoring—and then the insight follows: that by showing up with hope to help others, I’m guaranteed that hope is present. Then my own hope increases. By creating hope for others, I end up awash in the stuff.
Note 1: May things be the best they can be for each of you, in this last week of November. I hope you enjoy this article and I will see you next week. With thanks, Trudy
