The Power of One

In so many ways, we become separated from ourselves and each other by the hustle and bustle of daily living. Though we possess many tools and technologies, they seem to create more distraction rather than more time to be alive in the fullest sense of the word. And many don’t even notice.

Against all odds, though, we are fortunate to have those whose labors give us pause to reflect on this thing called life, “in all its sham and drudgery” and thereby show us the power of individual effort, the power of one and what love can do.

This month, we bring you revelations of joy from a former Type A madman, labors of love from animal rescuers, cautionary tales from love gone wrong, seismic warnings about the financial bayou, language arts put to predictive use, indictments on fluoride and Premarin, lessons about effective mindset and more.

The opportunity every day is to form more fully and share your gifts with a world full of need and wonder, for we live in a time of angels and devils.

“[Saint Anthony] said, in his solitude, he sometimes encountered devils who looked like angels, and other times he found angels who looked like devils. When asked how he could tell the difference, the saint said that you can only tell which is which by the way you feel after the creature has left your company.” — Elizabeth Gilbert
