“What is your cellular legacy? Each of us has a time-limited opportunity to leave a legacy. Just as your body is a community of individual but mutually dependent cells, we are a world of interdependent people. We all have an impact on the world, whether we realize it or not. Large changes, such as implementing policies for societal stress reduction, are vital. Small changes are important, too. How we interact with other people shapes their feelings and sense of trust. Every day, each of us has the chance to positively influence the life of another person.”
The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD & Elissa Epel, PhD
I'm sharing this quote with you because it was a message I needed to hear and it inspired me. I hope Blackburn and Epel's words inspire you, too. If you’re looking for a good read, I highly recommend The Telomere Effect.
In other news, I’m teaching my online journaling course—Write to Flourish: A Beginner’s Guide to Journaling—in March. I hope you’ll join us. Course details here.
I’ll be back next week with a long essay about mindfulness and anxiety. Make it a great weekend!
