Every day is a new day, a new opportunity.
Leaders are not who we think they are. Leaders are those who are courageously facing their fears, expressing their concerns, and bravely moving step by step through each day with resolve.
Leaders tell it like it is. It’s not what everyone wants to hear – it can’t be if it’s real. It’s what everyone needs to hear. Without facts, who can accurately determine what choice they should make?
For a long time, divisions have been festering. Divisions of race, divisions of wealth, divisions of politics, divisions of geography, divisions of religion.
What has not been divided is the air we breathe, the ocean midst, the seeds carried on the wind, the clouds dispersing moisture.
Every day, there is an opportunity to find your own space.
Every day, there is an opportunity to find your own voice.
Every day, there is an opportunity to learn.
Every day, there is an opportunity to be kind.
Every day, there is an opportunity to determine who is leading and who is not.
What is the truth? Who is dividing? Who is self-promoting? Who is blame-shifting? Who is courageously saying what needs to be said?
Who are you? Are you a leader?
One day at a time. If we are honest with ourselves, and aware of our surroundings, our heartbeats, our earthscape, we’ll get there.
