I laugh, I love, I hope, I try I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry And I know you do the same things, too So we're really not that different, me and you

I’ve never heard Colin Raye‘s country song that includes these lyrics and I’m not a country fan in general, but I really related to these words. They speak to me to remember that were all the same – we feel, we love, we hurt, and we need others.

As a quote its genius and it’s quick and easy reminder to think of others. It’s easy to get bogged down in the busy work of life, but this quotation helps me remember that life is more than just getting things from point a to point b, it’s about truly living a life filled with love and compassion every day.
