This lyric comes from the song From Now On in the motion picture The Greatest Showman:  

I drank champagne with kings and queens
The politicians praised my name
But those are someone else’s dreams
The pitfalls of the man I became
For years and years
I chased their cheers
The crazy speed of always needing more
But when I stop
And see you here
I remember who all this was for

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What’s waited till tomorrow starts tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on

There is great wisdom that is shared by the characters in this song.  P.T. Barnam comes to terms with his suffering that he has been experiencing by living the “High Life” and leaving those he truly cares about behind.  Through noticing his suffering, he recognized how those he truly cares about were also suffering and missing his light and presence.  Compassion is recognizing the suffering in ourselves and others, which instantly cultivates our connection with one another.  P.T. Barnam acknowledging his suffering allowed him to acknowledge the suffering of those he truly cares about.  This type of honest and unconditional connection strengthens the bond within the relationships and stands beyond the tests of time.  Through P.T. Barnam’s compassion, the rest of his members in his show decided that they too would come home again and keep the fun, joy, and show alive!  Let us inspire one another in living through compassion.  By doing so we will activate our parasympathetic nervous system (our system for thriving) and be more open to seeing others perspectives, opportunity, change, and learning.  What is one way each day that you can practice compassion with yourself and others?  Got it?  Okay, go celebrate  and create compassionately 🙂
