What exactly is it that you desire? What fills your heart and soul? What engages your actions?
What are you choosing to make central to your life?
I can tell you this: no matter how much pain you are in, no matter how lonely, angry, frustrated, sad, weary, or overwhelmed you may feel, there is still love in this world. There is still hope.
You can choose to take a breath, raise your head, open your eyes, and meet this hope, this love. We all can. We are in this together. Let us offer one another friendship, and a challenge to live better lives. Remember, the smallest actions have effect.
We can do this. Together. Never forget: you are whole.
