Every day we rise.
Every single day we have the chance to start anew. To create what we want from our day and our lives.
Every day we have the opportunity to embrace our struggles and hold strong in this moment, the only one that matters.
Life will present endless challenges, but every challenge has a unique opportunity tucked inside. And right now the world is full of challenges, large and small, ridiculously significant and seemingly insignificant, global and personal, old and new. Which means right now, at this time in history, there are more opportunities than ever to make a difference.
So today, let’s rise. Let’s rise from our homes with a purpose, a message, a voice, and so much radical LOVE.
Let’s rise up in love, in courage, with hope, faith, and commitment.
Rising up means different things to different people.
Rising with courage can be found…
… in the midst of a march
… in between the words of a political poem
… in a hug from a stranger
… in the release of a tear
… in the courage of a truth teller’s eyes
… in the rawness of a photograph
… in the passion of an open conversation
… in the stories of hope
… and in so many other moments.
Show up in your own way, but know your values, understand your worth, believe in what you stand for.
And know in your bones that you can make a big difference, just by being willing to rise.
Rise up and shine on x
