It can take a big life event to step back and refocus your priorities, and really appreciate every day for the gift it is. Reena from Passion Fit’s post about embracing empathy and gratitude is a beautiful call to action to step back and refocus. She writes:
“…having a sense of empathy for others can really go a long way in facing and learning from these situations. We never know what someone might be going through in their life, which is why I believe it’s so critical to put ourselves in their shoes, give them the benefit of the doubt and lend a helping hand in times of need. We all go through ups and downs and remembering that can help us all feel more connected and understanding of one other.”
Is that beautiful, or what? It’s all about the spirit of community, of giving others not just the benefit of the doubt but the gift of grace and empathy, too.
