I wake to the news and I’m saddened. I never thought the government of this country could be so heartless.
I watch the news unfold during the day and I’m angered. The lack of empathy, a distinct lack of kindness. It’s rotten.
When I was younger I thought that living an important life was what I was destined for. And that important life would make a difference in a big way.
I turned 39 last week and it hit me like a tonne of bricks. I don’t have a big important life. I have a little, quiet life. And my ability to affect change seems minimal.
What I have come to see though is that a quiet life can still be an important life. That small kindness, an open mind and empathy can make a difference. That as a Mama I can instil these important values in my boys. That I can live by example. And that if everyone for in with living a life with a lens of kindness and empathy the news would be very different.
