humanity

morning.

i found this lovely quote this morning over at Shutter Sisters....i thought it was absolutely beautiful and one that i'd like to be mindful of today......



"When people aren't pitted against each other, when they are not even mildly competing, when people aren't vying for position (because all positions in this circle are equally important), they jump out of themselves and into their humanity. They fall so in love with each other they think they wrote each other's pieces. They're proud of each other and they root for each other. They cry for each other and they feel for each other. When people feel safe, they recognize themselves in others, and instead of being threatened by their differences, they are moved by them. When they are safe, they are moved by their own differences."

- Nancy Slonim Aronie, Writing from the Heart
