“We don’t set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people’s hearts.” ~Pema Chodron
This TedX Honolulu talk with Timber Hawkeye is inspiring and right on point in my opinion. I watched it over and over several times just to be sure I really heard every word Timber was sharing.
In the beginning his voice shakes and it reminded me to Speak Your Truth Even If Your Voice Shakes!

I’ve included some of the highlights, in my opinion, from Timber’s Talk below.
Timber tells us to think BIG and to think GLOBALLY.
“Be grateful because gratitude has a way of turning what we have into enough. And that is luxury. That is being rich.”
“We have been so terribly misguided by the notion that happiness is something we have to pursue. And it’s in that pursuit of happiness that we’ve actually lost our way.”
“The breath is not something we just take. Breathing is a gift. It is a miracle that is offered to us over and over again, yet much like our health, we often take it for granted right up until the moment we no longer have it.”
“Your beliefs don’t make you a better person. Your behavior does.”
“Don’t rely on government or television to be the leaders of hope and positivity. You yourself can become that beacon of light.”
