Character

You don’t just rise in the morning with your character; it’s formed and reformed every day, pressed together, pulled apart, and recreated by your

company

connections

music

moments

books

browsers

paths

and poisons.

Generosity

It’s through

generosity —

a relentless

and reckless

kindness —

that we become

something more;

never by money

or influence,

for

these things

are impotent

in matters

of character.

Touchstone Tuesday: Poem XIX

Perhaps,

the selections

we don’t make

are as

foundational

to our character

as the ones

we do.

 

(I love that this is entitled Touchstone Tuesday: Poem XIX as though I have any idea what day of the week it is. Hope it’s Tuesday!)
