My life matters

It always matters whether I reach out in friendship or lash out in anger.

It matters whether I live with compassion and awareness or whether I succumb to distractions and trivia.

It always matters how I treat other people, how I treat animals, and how I treat myself.

It always matters what I do. It always matters what I say. And it always matters what I eat.

When I choose to affirm the dignity inherent in life and to uphold the beauty, the magic, and the mystery of the living Earth, something happens.

It happens whether or not anyone else recognizes my efforts, and it happens regardless of how wounded or flawed I am.

What happens is I join a long lineage of human beings who have stood for and helped to bring about a future worthy of all the tears and prayers our species has known.

My life becomes a statement of human possibility.

My life becomes an instrument through which a healthier, more compassionate, and more sustainable future will come to be.

Excerpt from "The Food Revolution" by John Robbins
