Effort and Intention

This is an era where waiting, watching and listening are among the best things we can do, so why not do them well?


Don’t just wait at others’ whim; grow your own patience. Don’t just watch what’s on the TV or your device; also watch your words, your actions and their impact.


Don’t just listen to what others say, pay attention to your own inner compass, soul needs, and heart.

It’s not as easy as it sounds, for sure; but it’s for sure worth the effort and intention. Make the best of this time, because either way, the time will pass. Get to know yourself and love yourself. Your efforts will pay dividends that last.
