Embracing Differences

Day 189

Affirmation:

I am grateful for the gift of differing views and opinions, opposing perspectives and beliefs, and unrecognizable ideologies.  Such gifts of diversity offer me opportunities for expansion, compassion, tolerance and gratitude.

What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.  If everyone had the same beliefs, attitudes, thoughts and feelings, there would be nothing to facilitate broader understanding or promote the learning of foreign ideas.  In fact there would be no foreign ideas.  From differences and diversity we learn tolerance and acceptance.  We may not always agree with other’s choices or modes of self-expression, but from those differences we learn to respect and appreciate individuality.  Embracing differences promotes a deep and reverent gratitude for the opportunity to live in a world filled with so many divergent expressions.
