connection is transformational

today's prompt: The world is powered by passionate people, powerful ideas, and fearless action. What’s one strong belief you possess that isn’t shared by your closest friends or family? What inspires this belief, and what have you done to actively live it?

passionate, powerful, fearless--these are challenging words for me. i know i have some work to do before i could use them to describe me. maybe that's why i'm struggling with this one strong belief prompt. what i can say is this: i believe connection is transformational. i believe who we are is shaped most intensely in relationship with other human beings, for better and for worse. we are wired for connection from our earliest days in the womb, and i don't think that ever goes away. life is best lived in relationships that allow and encourage us to be most fully who we are.

roar

today's prompt:
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.

today was crowned by a sweet, sweet walk with my daughter, who roared each time she saw a dandelion.
