We are all equal

Posted Thursday, December 13th, 2012. Filed Under My Daily Dose

I want to share with you part of an email that was sent to me from Mike Dillard from The Elevation Group.

We are all equal – no one is better than you or below you. Yes, some are more aware than others and it takes a strong person to treat those who are less aware with compassion and love. I know because there are some people in my life you I believe are not as aware. That is their issue and their journey. I know and I will like to be that person that can go deep within themselves to find love and compassion.

I want you to stop comparing yourself to others especially the stars. We put them on a pedestal when in fact, they are just like you and me.

Life is a journey…. enjoy every moment and know you can do it!
