These are challenging times we live in and sometimes we wonder why we're here, perhaps that we're helpless among all the violence and unrest, and we tend to ask ourselves what we can really do to solve these issues? This lovely article, "You Were Made for This" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, really sets things into perspective. We have been equipped to handle everything we come across in our lives, with little bites at a time. Read for a little inspiration to get your heart and soul back on track.
"My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely."
