To be human is a beautiful thing.
We are all one.
That's what I sing.
--- Carolyn J. Braden
Humans make mistakes. Humans achieve greatness. Humans make others feel sad. Humans make others feel happy.
Humans affect (but unfortunately sometimes, "infect") humans.
I write "I am human" in my journal to remind myself that what I say and do affects others.
I'd much rather affect than infect others.
If I keep that in my mind, I stay positive, and positivity allows me to achieve affection instead of infection.
I have a dream we will all realize this one day and it will bring us together in ways we never imagined, but our hearts always hoped for. Check out more of my dreams relating to all things human in my writing piece (and podcast) titled I Have a Dream Too.
Backstory on my mantra series:
A mantra is a word, phrase, or sound that is repeated to aid in meditation. You could also compare it to a sort of prayer. I feel my journaling and writing of my mantras is a form of meditation or prayer. It calms me and helps me make better sense of my feelings and all the thoughts swimming around in my mind.
I believe saying or writing something repeatedly, as you already have it, aids one in attaining dreams and goals. If you write something as you already have it, it makes you feel, somehow, as if it is truly happening no matter how drastic or scary it may seem. It's like a trick to help your brain catch up to what your heart desires.
