“The world in which you were born is just one model of reality. Other cultures are not failed attempts at being you; they are unique manifestations of the human spirit.”—Wade Davis
This is how I try to see the world around me everyday. I try to remember that there are lives that are different from my own and that hold its own blessings for those who do not live as I do.
I try to instill in my children an open hearted-ness that at time I don’t feel myself. I have lived briefly among other cultures. I resented them at times, but I tried to understand that I am me and they are them and we should all be able to embrace such variety. I am a work in progress, trying to see beyond everything that is just me.
