The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Whole

To be great, be whole;
Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor
Because it blooms up above.
— Fernando Pessoa, Poems of Fernando Pessoa

Acceptance of our wholeness is restorative.
