V is for Valour…

Welcome to your daily dose of inspiration:
In Darkness Be Light

Since social media and news in recent times has been filled with so much hate and negativity, these simple reminders aim at promoting positivity and lightening up your day.

Valour: Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.    Robert F. Kennedy


Would you like to be a part of spreading positivity? Check out the We Are The World Blogfest, which aims at promoting positive news. Here’s the shortened version:


  • Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
  • All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
  • Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news.

The ripple effect is based on the understanding that we are all connected. These connections stretch like an incredibly interwoven and complicated tapestry. Each of us exists within this tapestry. Everything you do in life ripples throughout time and space. It’s like a drop of water on a calm lake, where energy is transferred outwards in concentric circles, meaning that all of our actions have far reaching effects.
Can you imagine the healing power of this combined energy directed in a positive manner?

    I’m glad I was a part of the ‘We are the world’ blogfest. The very thought of infusing the world around us with some positivity is heartwarming. Valour makes is sound like a mighty cause that it actually is.

    Yes, I do believe our actions, and even the emotional effect of our thoughts, create ripples in the fabric of the universe and generate a cumulative reaction. Therefore we must hold ourselves responsible not to add to the negative elements..
