The definition of sacrifice: an alternative view

So much about so many things is just the way we choose to look at them.

Take sacrifice.

For most of us, most of the time, sacrifice seems like something negative. Bad. Painful. Something to make us grimace.

What if we choose to look at it another way? What if we choose to see the definition of sacrifice differently?

If something is important enough, we will find a way not to let it go.

If something is not, then it’s no sacrifice at all to remove it from our lives.

The origin of the word “sacrifice” owes something to “making sacred”. I like to think of it that way.
