First, we learn to say No.
And then, after we have cleared out the rubble and stick of confusion, eliminated the obligatory acquiescence, and are committed to a powerful occupation of this body – the vehicle by which we are able to walk the planet, to give and receive love, commune, connect, serve, create, and vocalize with – then, we learn to say yes. With commitment and conviction.
Let’s do the work… not for our vanity, not for the validation we may never get. Let’s do the work so we can get to the business of making ourselves useful.
To a safer year for all!
Perhaps we should be working together. Send me an email and we’ll chat. It would be a fucking honor to be a part of your new year.
