Big, beautiful world

There is a whole big, beautiful world out there. From where you are, you can gain access to the very best of it.

It’s easy to become dismayed when you focus too long on your own immediate surroundings. It can feel like you are stuck, and like all the best opportunities have already played out.

Yet that’s not the case at all. Every day, countless numbers of people are living lives of true fulfillment, and that fulfillment is really not so far away from you.

Although your choices may seem limited, that’s just because of your limited perspective. Look around, look outward, open your mind and your senses to more of what’s going on in this big, beautiful world.

If the news seems to all be negative, that’s because the good things are so common and so pervasive that they are not considered news. Despite the urgings of those who profit from your fear, the world is filled with goodness and value.

Step away from your comfortable habits, assumptions and routines. There’s a whole big, beautiful world out there, and it’s yours to explore, to enjoy, and to make even better.
