Awaken Our World

With all the darkness in the world, it's easy to get bogged down in all the sadness and apathy around us. So we decided to take action. We’re on a mission to make the world a brighter place. Here we'll be sharing our ideas of how you can help us on our mission. We would also like other people to submit their ideas, as well as things they have done to help the world. You'll find uplifting and motivational quotes, pictures, and songs posted by us to inspire you along the way. We'll leave the rest to you. (Also, feel free to contact us at Awaken-our-World@hotmail.com or become a fan of our page on facebook!)

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Teddy Roosevelt, “The Man in the Arena”

Kindness is one of those things that really stands out when you experience it and when you’re part of giving someone else that experience, you feel a sense of accomplishment. In a small or big way at a particular time, you’ve made someone’s life easier. So, maybe you don’t always have the time, the resources or the opportunity to go out of your way to help others. But what about those around you? Do you show them kindness? Because it’s something we could all use once in while; kindness makes breathing easier. So this is just my tip to you today – kindness: pass it on.

Perhaps most of all, though, you deserve to be okay. You deserve to know that a day in which you can just barely get out of bed because you are sad, or sick, or simply not ready to see the outside is not the end of the world. You deserve to know that moments of weakness do not make you fundamentally weak, only fundamentally human, and that sometimes we’re not going to be effusively happy, and that is okay.

Street Compliments

If you haven’t complimented someone today, you should go do it right now.

Compliment AT LEAST one person you care about at least once a day, and really mean it.

Phillip Phillips - Home

"Home" — Phillip Phillips

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

I’m thinking of starting a lifelong notebook of things that are beautiful, things that I just need to sketch onto pages, collect for future reference. Things like porch lights and raindrops, jasmine and the softness of hair. The sound of backyard waterfalls, fog blankets on forested hills. An endless, endless list of the things that make it all so beautiful, the endless Gifts of this gentle existence.

Isn’t it ironic that being a hipster takes more than just wit and intellect? From your flannel tee and skinny jeans to your journal and single origin espresso, you’ve curated a collection of goods most likely made with forced labor.

The problem is that governments are only concerned with building roads and building buildings, and not with building human souls.
