What do you envision for the year to come? After reading a recent article in the December 2016 National Geographic, I was struck by the science and fact-oriented publication’s article on “The Healing Power of Faith.”
This was inspired in part by a glimmer of insight I had while reading Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Emerson’s Essays.” In it he talks about the human flaw of trying to please and appease others.
He says that “imitation is suicide.” I think in today’s media-driven world, we are constantly comparing ourselves to each other. We must have a bigger car, a bigger house, a bigger bust, a bigger, and well, you get the picture.
