the threads and the tapestry

no matter how bleak the world can often seem, don't stop creating. if you're a writer, keep writing. if you're a speaker, keep speaking. if you're a painter, keep painting. if you're doing something to make the world a better place, please, please, please keep doing it. keep doing it because it's not "just". it's not just a hobby or a thing you enjoy, it's something that's going to help heal the planet and everyone who lives here. 

there are so, so, so, many people and places who in desperate need of  h o p e . we need it. there's not a single place you can go on this planet that doesn't need it. and we actually possess the ability to give it as a gift to the world, to someone, through whatever it is we are working on. our gifts, our talents - they were given to us for a reason. not to keep to ourselves, but to shed just a little more light.

i'm honestly convinced that if every single one of us realized this - if we lifted both hands and let the light shine out through our fingertips?

it's a's a big, big something hiding in the undertones of all that is good, all that heals, all that helps; from good music to a kind act - there's threads weaving it together into a larger tapestry that we're standing too near to see. but it's  s o   b e a u t i f u l , and it means  e v e r y t h i n g 

i can't help but feel like that's one of the greatest reasons that we live: to add our very own, eternal threads to this thick, colorful, fragrant tapestry - and to stand back and truly see it. to see that our threads helped make it.

so don't stop creating.
don't stop creating please.

you have no idea how much your gift matters; how much you have to give. how much it means and how beautiful it is.
