#MeToo

Push Through

Seasons of devestation, grief, sadness, and loss create an illusion that the world is an awful place. The world is awful, but it is also beautiful and quiet, still and hopeful. Allow your heart to see grace and push through. Push through your pain. Push through the destruction. Push through the ugliness. Reach out with your best intentions and find good in the world. Be the good. Push through.

You Are Woke

It feels as though the world has changed and we were not ready. Mass shootings are getting worse. Each new tragedy awakens more shock in us, as we witness more people targeted, killed, and wounded. But the world has not changed. Evil always chooses a non-descript house in our neighborhood, living among regular people. It hides behind our good intentions. It questions our kindness when we catch a glimpse of wickedness. Evil mimics what good people do while it plots destruction. The world has not changed. It has been revealed and you are woke.

Follow Your Bliss

Follow your bliss. It's a reminder that you only get this one life. Know what your bliss is and make you life around that. Sure, you need to pay your bills, keep a roof over your head, and generally sustain yourself. But keep your bliss out front, so you can follow it.

The End of One Journey

The end of one journey leads to the beginning of the next. When you come to the ending of one season, look for the open door. It leads you to the next phase. All that you learned from the past has prepared you for what is coming. All that you need awaits you.
