It is in vain to dream of a wildness distant from ourselves. There is none such.
- Thoreau, August 1856
If you bring wild you will find wildness.
If you bring hope you will find hope.
If you bring cupcakes you will find cupcakes.
If you bring love you will find love.
If you bring kindness you will find kindness.
If you bring empathy you will find empathy.
These things don't exist. When I go to work, there is no jar of kindness or love. I don't fill up a bag of empathy along with my car with gas and my mug with coffee. I create that on my own and I bring it with me.
This post was inspired by the ending of Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project.
