Stop for a minute and think about a typical day in the life of you.  What happens during the course of your day?  Who do you come into contact with?  Do you interact with anyone?  What kind of experiences do you have through your day?  Life, it seems, is made up of many an ordinary, normal day filled with, well, everyday stuff. So how are we supposed to use that as inspiration for saving the world?

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly…to listen to stars and buds, to babes and sages, with open heart; await occasions, hurry never…this is my symphony.” –William Henry Channing

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. It sums up my life philosophy so brilliantly, so simply, and whenever I lose sight of one of the ideas, it grounds me back to a more sane way of viewing my world.
