When I need a boost of empathy and inspiration, Brene Brown is a favorite source.  There is no shame in having ups and downs. In fact, the vulnerability is more honest than a more superficial answer.  I like depth and intelligent conversation.  I like people who speak the truth and try to live it.  Rising up and trying to keep going is a strength. It is hard when you feel you are pushing through all alone, but the resilience and effort mean that you have not given up.

There are toxic situations and heartbreaking losses.  Grief, fear, anger, loss, and disappointment are real; they grab hold as they keep us teetering on the edge.

Keep going.  Honor your personal sense of integrity no matter how others behave. Speak the truth.  Remember who you are and all that you are capable of.  Don’t lose sight of the core of strength, empathy, and compassion.  We are a work in progress and hope and grace have no end.



Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you enjoy your visit.
