Be that one person – with love

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.” 

+ Richard Buckminster Fuller

And here’s the thing: we can’t be that one person without love.

Because love enables us to rise – again and again.

There is no greater threat to the critics
and cynics and fearmongers
than those of us who are willing to fall
because we have learned how to rise.

+ Brené Brown, excerpt from Manifesto of the Brave and Brokenhearted, in Rising Strong
