Don’t we enjoy handing out stamps of approval a bit too much? I approve of how you look, dress, and speak. I approve of how you think, see, and feel. I approve of how you listen to me. I make you my friend.
But maybe just maybe there is another way to enjoy who we are. To appreciate our unique ways of being instead. We don’t look anything alike. We live far apart. We speak different languages. And yet I see a spark of you in me.
I am fire and you are earth. I am water and you are wind. As different as can be. Nothing in common seemingly. Except for – here we are together on this planet. Our home. And each one of us – an essential element in this grand universe.
