1,000 Gifts

So go ahead — Dare to be brilliant — just seek the light in everything. Dare to believe joy is revolutionary: it goes straight against the way this dark world spins.  Light is always a radical thing in a dark world. Dare to Give Big because this is how you Live Big. Dare to believe that it’s only your own sacrifices that show up at your funeral. Dare not to quit when you're tired, but dare to quit when you're done. Dare to be grateful for every good thing. And dare to know it's all good. That's what God does: God works everything for good.
