Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that’s a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.

“Be compassionate to yourself, even as you look at your mistakes and mishaps. Then, if others are less than perfect too, use your developing compassion to kill your anger and frustration. Practice this every minute. Life is the practice. As the Buddha said, ‘Now, everything is totally in your hands.”
– Gyalwang Drukpa
