Take the time today to remember a time in your life when you thought that life was all over for you. Remember a time when you reached a bottom... when you could go no further... when you were ready to give up... to quit.
Remember what happened to turn that moment around. Was it an inspiration from a page in a book, a touch of a friend, a spiritual awakening?
Remember the love that was given to you, and how far you have come from that moment. It does not even matter if you are not where you think you should be... you are not where you were.
Remember the love... refeel that love... and pass it on to someone else in need.
Historically speaking, when human beings are faced with the choice between destruction and change, they are apt to choose change, and it's about the only thing that will make them choose change. ~ Peace Pilgrim
