Hear Me Out

Today, I told an uber driver that I was there to listen, that his story mattered. In return, he gifted me the honor of learning about his journey as a Lost Boy, and at the final destination, neither of us wanted to leave.

There is human strength all around us, but sometimes, we simply forget to stop, ask, and listen. So today, let’s empower one another. Let’s lift our neighbors with our stories. And let us all begin to stop and listen. We are here together, and ‘here’ is truly an incredible place to be!

The Best Part of Heartbreak

This week, I received an e-mail about heartbreak. More specifically, I received an e-mail asking how to possibly stay positive through heartbreak. And the answer is quite simple: DON’T. Not at first.

Instead, accept how you feel. Instead, express how you feel. Instead, use this heartbreak as an opportunity to remember exactly why you are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! In fact, make a list of the ten ways you are absolutely incredible today, tomorrow, the next day … keep making those lists until you feel again like the lively, spirited YOU! And keep reaching out with your questions! I’m always ready to listen.

Sunday Gratitude

What are you grateful for this beautiful Sunday?

Today, I love busy airports. I love running into people I know in those busy airports, because it happens so rarely. I love getting to know those people more, embracing their stories. I love Ms.A’s stories, how she takes time to notice all the details and sensations in every moment.

Today, I love sitting in Ms. A’s moments, and sharing mine. I love that so many of our moments now intersect, and that our home is now the same. Today, I love going back to that home I call Vandy. I love that my home is filled with family, some I’ve only known a few months. I love how we all grow so close so quickly. I love knowing that Ms. A is 99% of the reason why.

Today, I love leaving my family’s home to go home.
