The Power of We (Manifesto)

BADpostimage

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. -Mother Theresa

The power of we is important because it includes the power of me, you, and them.

The power of we allows us to share our individual goals with others and to act with fearlessness.

The power of we lets us live openly, knowing that somewhere in that we is someone who feels the same as we do.

The power of we allows us to be who we are without compromise.

The power of we lets us know that we are never alone, that we are never just me, solo.

The power of we wraps us up in a blanket of safety where our dreams aren’t crazy or useless or stupid.

The power of we can change the world when we find like-minded people.

The power of we allows us to step forward and act vs. hide in reservation.

The power of we gives us strength to find what makes our heart sing.

The power of we holds us when we think that me isn’t enough.

The power of we lets us hold on to our personal dreams while also sharing them with others.

The power of we makes us better, happier, stronger people.

The power of we lets us move forward and grow without worrying what is to come.

The power of we takes our wildest dreams and creations and says “Well done!”

The power of we holds our hand when we think we can’t do it.

The power of we is what we forget when it’s dark out and we’re alone. 

The power of we is me + you or me + them or me + you + them.

The power of we is unstoppable.

    Very nicely done. My favorite is this one: “The power of we holds us when we think that me isn’t enough.” Most of us have a period where we feel totally alone, even if we’re surrounded by people Something like this needs to be accepted by us in those times of need; we’re never really alone.

      Thanks, Mitch! I liked that one, too. :) And you’re right, we need to accept it (and remember it), especially, as you noted, when we’re surrounded by others yet still feel alone. Important to remember, yet sometimes easy to forget.
