An exercise in clarity
I stand for Kindness, because it matters.
I stand for Honesty, because without trust we’ve got nothing but fear.
I stand for Love, it really does make the world go round.
I stand for Inclusion, because, as the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, “When everyone is included, everyone wins.”
I stand for Intuitive Living, because we all hold Truth deep within our cells.
I stand for Spiritual Action AND Connection, because thoughts and beliefs without action are empty half-formed things.
I stand for Owning & Telling Our Stories, because our stories matter and, as Anne Lamott so wisely once put it, “You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”
I stand for Curiosity, because it not only didn’t kill the cat, it fuels our creativity.
I stand for Consent, because without full consent, you have only violation.
I stand for the Inherent Worth of Everyone, because trans women are women, Black Lives Matter, Me Too is Truth, and disabled needs matter way more than abled feelings. . This exercise was part of Caroline Leon’s 14 Content Creation Challenge.
