In life we are to be messengers of peace, signs of joy; not Chicken Little portents of gloom-n-doom.
In life we are to seek conscious awareness;not doze in the doldrums of half-awake.
In life we are to show up, stand up, step forward and speak up; not to cringe in fear, choosing to sit down, to step back, allowing the voices of silence to speak so loudly.
In life we are to move forward through forgiveness; not grind to a halt mired in bitterness and resentment.
In life we are to reach, to stretch, and to soar; not to slink in fear, held back by mistrust and doubt.
In life we are to comprehend, "I am worthwhile"; not tremble with feelings of worthlessness.
