“We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about ... like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.
We are far too easily pleased.”
- C.S. Lewis (1898 – 1963) | Irish writer and scholar
I’ve always loved that thought. It reminds me to think/act/be bolder. It reminds me to keep pushing for truth and the way things could and should be … to ask “What’s next?”
How much better would our lives be (all of our lives) if more of us woke up each day feeling obligated to making a positive difference in the world … even if it’s only a small difference at times … or just creating a better moment for someone else?
What if more of us stepped out of passivity (meeting expectations, apathy, indifference, “good enough”) and chose the pursuit of better ... more often? (Two-twelved it?)
I think we all know what would happen … a whole lotta good... and a whole lotta fun.
