I am fortunate to be a part of a creative community that meets regularly online via Zoom. It makes a difference in this pandemic to be in contact with like minded people. I also have been looking a lot at quotes of well known individuals. This includes Albert Einstein, who was the subject of a book by a dear friend of mine who sadly passed last year. One of my favorite saying of Einstein is:
“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”
This resonates with me. We as a culture do get caught up with “success” that is based on monetary gain and can forget the bigger picture. What matters most is our relationship with ourselves in which we deem what matters to us. I believe we do have a choice and that what you think about can have an impact on what you encounter. I believe it is vital to focus on the positive.
