Show up as your genuine self.

People of Hope

If we can get to the place where we show up as our genuine selves and let each other see who we really are, the awe-inspiring ripple effect will change the world.”
Terrie M. Williams

The word that hung in my mind this morning was “Hope.” When I looked for quotes that spoke to hope, I loved so many of them that I couldn't stop writing them down. We, as people of the world, need to dig down deep inside and find hope, then bring it up to share with one another. We cannot get dragged down by the voices of hate and doom. Here are my favorites; you've seen them before:

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don't give up.”
Anne Lamott

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.”
Emily Dickenson

You are full of unshaped dreams...You are laden with beginnings...There is hope in you.”
Lola Ridge

We cannot succumb to fear and hatred. We must work and pray and strive everyday to live from our genuine selves, to let one another see who we really are. We are people of hope.
