Welcome to Write Your Vision!

Deep down, most people have dreams - they may be forgotten, unspoken, or unrealized - but they are there. I want to help you remember and believe in them again...

Compassion is Significant

How many times has someone asked you to put yourself in their shoes?  It seems I'm hearing that a lot lately and have even started repeating it myself.

But can you REALLY do that?  Probably not.

The point is to empathize and show compassion for the person(s) in a situation.  More often than not, it's difficult to do for any number of reasons.  I often think - well, I'd NEVER ____________ (fill in your own blank).

Thing is, while I may actually think that initially - I've lived long enough now to learn NOT to speak in absolutes because God has a funny way of bringing those very things I thought I would "NEVER" face or never do right into my path.  I think God and the universe DOES definitely have a sense of humor in that way.

At one point or another in our lives, we will face things we never thought would happen...

I think that is inevitable.

So, as you Write Your Vision for your future - expect that unexpected things will come up.  And when faced with a choice to show compassion for someone else, seriously consider doing it.  There may come a day when you'll wish for someone else to do the same for you.

     THINK.       WRITE.       BELIEVE.       ACT.
