the amount of need in the world can feel overwhelming when looked at in its entirety.
when we feel overwhelmed, we may freeze up or close down, but the weight of the world isn’t our burden to bear. life isn’t calling us to be saviors. life is calling on us to engage and to love. love really becomes something when it is specific, so we can be very specific in how we engage the world, what we do to benefit, where we offer our help.
we don’t have to do it all.
we do what we can, where we can, when we can, how we can, with who we are.
