sunriseToday, I will not contribute to the wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth. Suffice it to say, there has never been a more important time to go first.

More than ever, the world needs leaders and life changers.

More than ever, the world needs us to see “what is” differently, so we can actively create “what is possible.”

More than ever, “as soon as” and “if only” will not do.

More than ever, we are called to love well, live well and lead.

And we are called to be well, for only in finding our center, that still small place within that anchors us and moves us forward, can we find the energy and passion to manifest possibility, to manifest love.

We’ve been shaken. That is the challenge. We’ve been shaken out of our stupor. That is the gift. We are resilient. That is the truth.

There has never been a more important time to go first.

Because the world needs more leaders and life changers.

It is 5:33 am and I cannot sleep. But soon the sun will rise, new life will come into the world, and we will once again have the precious opportunity to love each other well, to see and expect the best, and to choose our focus carefully.

May we find each other in the dark and greet the new light with hands joined in

Peace.
