"Once the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box." Italian Proverb
I used to be intimadated by people in power - professionals who held some level of authority. I used to think I was inferior to them....that they were somehow better than me and carried all the answers.
I don't believe that anymore. I've learned that we're all made of the same stuff. It's not about whether or not we have a degree.......or hold a position of power......or even work in a factory.....everyone's just trying to live out their best lives.
And I've discovered people are nice or not simply because of the make-up of who they are.....not because of any position they might hold. It's those people who smile at the little guy....and hold the door open for them that's the best. Kindness outweighs power and authority.
Those are the people who taught me to live my best life....and to give back what's been given to me. They're the ones who showed me a softer more gentle way of being in the world.
There are amazing people everywhere.....people who are bright lights shining compassion....they stand out as a reminder that whoever we are....whatever we do.....each of us is worth the same.
