I started the day with Drew Dudley. Which sounds weird, but it brought on a day of miracles. And I'm ending it with this...
We are not here to be harsh on each other. I believe we are here to learn as much as possible about each other. To tell stories and keep our humanity alive. To love people that we don't even know. To share kindness and realise, recognise the miracles that surround us every day.
I believe we are here to stand up for what resonates with us. And to give each other grace, encouragement and a safe, peaceful place to rest.
We don't all get it right all the time - but what is right? What is wrong? What is perfect? Who are we to say? And who are we to judge.
What's right for me might not be right for you.
I know that I wish each and every one of you well.
And that while I have a conscious breath in my body I will continue to do so in the hope that my loves reaches around the world and has a positive effect every day.
One of my first miracles today was Drew - tweeting me and telling me he liked my phrase 'biffing people out of my ballpark' and that he is going to use it in his leadership programs that he runs in Canada.
He is an incredible speaker and educator on leadership, as well as a dedicated humanitarian.
I am super chuffed that my words will go to people on the other side of the world. Even more fabulous is that they are strong words, designed to create inner strength, through standing up for something you personally resonate with.
I am ok with biffing people out of my ball park. And so, I hope are you. We don't have to be perfect, but life is easier if we resonate with the people around us. We have a choice to do so, in fact, for most of us, it's our right. Challenges are good too, but there are ways to make sure they are in line with necessary growth. Banging your head against a brick wall, doesn't make it less brick, it only brings concussion.
Sometimes you need to find (or even create) a door.
Anyway. Sometimes it's just about loving yourself.
I am rounding out the night with this beautiful song: Love is easy.
Apart from anything else - it's our wedding song, so totally perfect for everyone.
Dance. Sing. EnJOY.
But most of all, love.
You're beautiful. *Don't argue with me about this tonight. I have my ranty pants on.
