A bit of beauty brought to you by Fresh Mummy and her Sunday Citar.
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems. ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
I stumbled across this while flicking through my book of quotes. I wasn't searching for one like this, and I don't remember where I found it originally but just now it struck a chord.
I'm sure originally I liked it for the fact of what it says, that we could solve most of the world's problems if we just put that extra effort in. Today it struck a less world-wide chord with me and more of a personal one.
What I do, and what I am capable of doing are two very different things, and sadly I usually don't do what I'm capable of.
How much have I let my abilities, words, actions and time go to waste?
There is no one else to blame, and no one else who can change it. Just I.
