Leaving the World a Better Place

We’ve all heard of the phrase, “Leaving the world a better place than when we came into it.”

We can also leave a day a better day than when we entered into it.

We can daily leave a relationship a better relationship than when we entered into it.

We can also leave our mind and heart a better place than when we first started the day.

We can do these by adding kindness and patience to the day, or adding forgiveness and understanding to the relationship, or adding wonder and compassion to our hearts and minds.

We can by also adding mercy, or letting go of criticism, or by fostering a sense of humor towards all that exists.

Cheesecake, although wonderful on any day, won’t do it by itself.
