A willingness to listen to different perspectives allows for growth, learning, unlearning and change. We are desperately in need of leadership.

Whether in action or inaction. Motivated or paralyzed. We can only be ourselves. These unparalleled times call for exceptional kindness to ourselves. Accepting what is and furthermore, knowing that what is now, may not be so tomorrow. Being aware but allowing for forgiveness. When all else fails. When your focus is lost. Your heart [...]
