Good Morning + Happy Wednesday!
…except that [as I write this] it’s the afternoon, and it’s Tuesday.
So now the secret’s out:
I wrote + scheduled this post in advance.
And it *absolutely* has not always been this way…

A Making-it-Happen Manifesto
You do not have to kill yourself to save them.
They will be happy with your happiness, after all.
You will be of greater service if you are served, after all.
The fuller your cup, the more will flow.
Your capacity to love + give + advise
is directly connected to the elegance
and gentleness you offer her, the one
you are most fully entrusted with [YOU].
You only have to love the healer, the helper,
the giver, the artist, more fiercely + deeply
than she has ever been loved [YOU].
Look at your intentions for others.
Are they love-filled? Honest? Empowering?
And now what of your intentions for yourself?
Wake each day, fiercely committed to doing that
which will propel your ship towards the sun.
Do that thing first.
For them, for you.
For all of humankind.
Discover what fuels your ship + sail it forth.
