A pledge to myself: This woman, this blog, the books I write, the words I speak, the actions I take, the way I walk in life will be a force for good.
These days, vitriol has become the norm. Trying to be heard in a hurricane of hate might be futile, but I am going to try. And I refuse to shout. I won’t point fingers. I won’t judge.
Instead, I will think the best of others. We all want simple things: a safe place to raise our families, food to eat, a chance to work or learn. That’s gotten lost somehow.
Today I pledge to stand in sharp contrast to what has become shamefully normal. I might get lonely, but I don’t care. I operate in love not hate.
Wishing you love as you pursue the simple things you need.
