How to Repay the Universe: Thursday, April 23rd

By some wondrous stroke of luck I was born straight plop into the universe. I was given life and consciousness and a chance to feel joy. And now I’m here with all of you, traveling on our pretty planet through the cosmos. We’re circling around a fiery sphere of gas that’s a million times larger than our own little rock. The earth is our spaceship and our bodies are spacesuits.

The best and most appropriate gift that I can give the universe, in return for my own life, is to do the work that ONLY I am capable of doing.

I can combat fear and insecurity by capitalizing on my own uniqueness. I am a poor version of everyone else, but a powerful version of myself.

The universe smiles when we act like ourselves.
