I have repeated these words to myself over and over again as we work through this point in our history:
I own my womanhood. I cradle my gentle will, my maternal instincts; I honor my power and those who have fought so fiercely for it with strength and care.
I put at the front of my heart those who are different than me, whose walk in this life is one I don’t know and I will SEE their stories, HEAR their hearts beat and wrap them in comfort as best I can when they feel hopeless.
I believe in compassion, in ambition, in the positive impact of change, the demand for fortitude and the necessity to keep moving forward. I will not stop fighting to move forward.
And now, more than ever, I choose love, freely, with no time to waste. I hope you will, too.
