Did you read “because you are a good heart” from #thenectarofpain? This is inspired from that page. ❤

P.302 in #thenectarofpain
Here’s the thing about people with good hearts. They give you excuses when you don’t explain yourself. They accept apologies you don’t give. They see the best in you when you don’t need them to. At your worst, they lift you up, even if it means putting their priorities aside. The word “busy” does not exist in their dictionary. They make time, even when you don’t. And you wonder why they’re the most sensitive people. You wonder why they’re the most caring people. You wonder why they are willing to give so much of themselves with no expectation in return. You wonder why their existence is not so essential to your well-being. It’s because they don’t make you work hard for the attention they give you. They accept the love they think they’ve earned, and you accept the love you think you’re entitled to. Let me tell you something. Fear the day when a good heart gives up on you. Our skies don’t become gray out of nowhere. Our sunshine does not allow the darkness to take over for no reason. A heart does not turn cold unless it’s been treated with coldness for a while.

Al Gore: “The World Needs Climate Reality Leaders” – Climate Reality Leadership Corps

The Climate Reality Project Chairman and Founder, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, is looking for passionate climate champions like you to join our upcoming Climate Reality Leaderships Corps training.

Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings bring together a select group of individuals committed to addressing the impacts of climate change and implementing the solutions that will define us to future generations. These events are opportunities to join a global network of leaders committed to solving the climate crisis.

Over the course of three days, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from experts who will share information about the science behind the climate crisis as well as their experiences educating and engaging diverse networks and communities. You will also have the chance to connect with a group of extraordinary leaders from a variety of sectors and countries around the world.

“Life changing,” “re-affirming,” and “empowering” are just some of the ways past participants have described their experience. Come as a leader, leave as a Climate Reality Leader.
