While it can be valuable to spend some time cataloguing and taking responsibility for our negative impacts on the world – our carbon footprint, our ecological footprint – the ongoing litany of our wrongdoing can wear down our spirits and sense of wellbeing. Giving more attention to our positive impacts, our handprint, can not only be personally rejuvenating, but restorative for the larger world as well. And there’s no better source for our best work than our deepest love.
