G R A V I T A T I O N ∞ I just want to go to sleep at night knowing i gave everything of myself that day and hopefully i became a better, more enlightened, person and made a small positive difference in the lives of the people i came in contact with. i have so much love, compassion and empathy to give. i truly want the best for everyone. if i can help someone, anyone, i will. it really is better to give than receive. 🦋
