Nothing was ever achieved by the man who stayed home.
We must show up for our community, we must show up for our friends, we must show up for our family, we must show up for ourselves, and we must show up for our God.
Then we must open our eyes.
It’s been said that with no vision, the people perish.
It’s been said that we must first seek to understand, then to be understood.
And yet, we live in a world of the blind leading the blind.
We must take off our own blinders of tradition, embrace the vulnerability, shed our ego and be willing to SEE PEOPLE and their unique strengths and challenges, to truly see different ways of living, and giving, and growing and being with clear eyes and an un-biased heart.
Finally, we must engage in love.
Love shows up for people, love sees people, love connects people, love heals people, love grows people, and love transcends people. Love conquers. Love is the answer. Love is all you need. Love is enough. God is love. You are love. Love wins.
