As a society we are all quite dependent on acceptance. We want to feel validated. We need approval. We want to feel like we are making a contribution - not only to the community in general - but also to family and friends. We put a lot on the line for this. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. WE hold the power.

Once you give yourself that validation (and I'm not talking on a surface level but really deep down) once you feel that- it doesnt matter who else you get it from. Or even if you get it elsewhere at all. You ARE validated. We cant wait around for someone else to make us happy. It will never happen. I know its a cliche but happiness comes from within. We really do hold a lot of power.

The mind is an incredible thing. It's all about how you train it. Like your body - if you feed your mind a lot of crap it wont work very well. If you take in a lot of negativity then thats generally what you will give out. But- if you are inspired, if you are surrounded by positive people, if you laugh a lot, if you love a lot - these things all add up to a lot of good.

So... go make some positive vibes. Go put a smile on someones face. And remember that you CAN do it. We are all in this together.
