I believe that we can all contribute to world peace. It starts with being kind to ourselves and finding peace within ourselves. Helping others is a great place to start, but the real work is inside each one of us.

We must find that peaceful, nourishing and inspiring place I call our Middle Ground.

heart centered world

This poem by Chade-Meng Tan (Google’s Jolly Good Fellow and author of Search Inside Yourself) is one of my inspirations.

With deep inner peace

And great compassion, self compassion and fun

Aspire daily to save the world.

But do not strive to achieve it.

Just do whatever comes naturally.

Because when aspiration is strong

And compassion blossoms,

Whatever comes naturally,

Is also the right thing to do.

Thus you,

The wise compassionate being,

Save the world while having fun.

save the world having fun


Thank you for joining me in aspiring to save the world while having fun!

  5. I love that the word fun is included Val! Whatever we put our hands to, should also be fun and filled with laughter – and occasionally even that painful I-can’t-stop-laughing- belly-laughter! ❤
