had to speak up for myself today, make sure that I shared what I need.
How is someone to know my needs if I don't speak up? Yet so often I shy
away from doing so. But today I chose to listen to my heart. I prayed
for the right words, for the clarity of mind, for the strength (not to
cry!) and that kindness and grace would infuse our conversation. They
did. It was good to stand up, to be heard and to know that whatever
happens next, I am on a path that is written on my heart.
I am sad to think that compassion, kindness and grace are not as
abundant in our lives as they ought to be. So now I pray that I can
continue forward with the message from my tea bag and delight the world with compassion, kindness and grace.
