Be the change

Just a $25 loan from you can be instrumental in allowing a woman, man, or group of individuals who do not have access to loans, to fund a business. This business allows them to move from abject poverty towards a better life for them and/or their families. Kiva and micro-lending  makes such things possible.  It is incredible that such a small amount from you can potentially positively affect and change so many lives.

Quote Tuesday

Quotes. Made in notepadImage via Wikipedia
Between stimulus and response  there is a space. In that peace is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~Victor Frankl

The reason for “Quote Tuesday” is simple. I believe that quotes are less happenstance utterances and more words of wisdom condensed into short, concise morsels that are ideal for our non-stop, hurry up society.  With this in mind, I was delighted to read “How Inspirational Quotes Can Change Lives” on one of my favorite websites Wisdom A La Carte. http://j.mp/fQZ4LV. The article, written by Sook Fun Chen, opens: 
“Do not underestimate the power of inspirational quotes. Great quotes can not only change lives, but might change a nation as a whole, if everybody studies and listens to the wisdom of the wise men. Words have enormous power!” http://j.mp/eotGCp
For the entire article, please go here http://j.mp/eotGCp. I am not saying that reading one quote can change your entire life. It is my hope that through these quotes that I post, you might glean some words of wisdom that inspires you toward positive life changes, as you travel along your own spiritual path.

Blessings and a very happy new year, Lydia
