The world is all weird and crazy right now, I know, but I’m trying to stay positive and keep looking for the good in all the bad. A lot of stuff is out of our control right now BUT we do have a lot in our control and we have to keep doing what we CAN do right now. For me? That’s continuing to reach for my reading goals! Here’s an update from the past two weeks of my favorite picture books! 

Have you read any interesting picture books during your quarantine? I’d love to hear about them if you are willing to share. Message me here on Tumblr, on my Instagram, or on Goodreads! Hope to hear from you soon and be safe out there readers. <3

A deep awareness of the goodness of human beings, that they are essentially kind, helpful, and gentle, can give us courage and hope. On a personal level too, such a vision of our basic nature can help promote a greater sense of well-being and connectedness with others.

“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

― The Dalai Lama

Sometimes we feel we can’t do much by ourselves, but humanity is made up of individuals; we can make a difference. As individuals we can influence our own families. Our families can shape our communities and our communities form our nations. Together we can make a better world.

Dalaî Lama
Compassion enhances our self-confidence because a calm mind allows our marvellous human intelligence to bloom. When we’re angry, our thinking is distorted and we don’t see the different aspects of reality. A calm mind enables us to take a broader, more realistic view.

#ThisWeekInHistory: NASA launched Gemini 8 on a mission to rendezvous and dock with Agena, a target vehicle in orbit; although the docking was successful, the joined vehicles began spinning, forcing Gemini to disconnect and abort the flight (3/16/1966); the Dalai Lama fled Tibet for India in the wake of a failed uprising by Tibetans against Chinese rule (3/17/1959).
