"I believe that this world will only get better when we each take responsibility for ourselves. When we individually decide that not just today, but everyday, what I put out in the world will be good or at least do no harm. When every person chooses kindness, love, and patience, not because it is easy but because it is right. So I don't release my negativity on the world, but I don't hold it in either where it could hurt me. I transform my inside feelings into something that makes this world better, because I choose happiness."
This is an activity that was shared in the Activity Forum at the #NAGCSymposium in Portland.
The participant who shared this with the group said that he heated up rocks in a crock pot (on medium). He also said that the colors stay vibrant for years! Great for a memorial garden.
