I’m in a check things off the list, distracted by the sun, summer break kind of rut. I need some inspiration.
I check in with myself and my community because it’s too easy to become jaded by the heart-wrenching stories and struggles I hear each day at work. The pain of it all is overwhelming, and sometimes the feeling that there is simply too much to do before we can just make it go away is discouraging.
However, I have two very amazing and very special friends who bring it all very close to home. Their pain and courage doesn’t just inspire me, it fires me up. It makes me angry. So while there are and will continue to be days that feel like they’ll never end, and projects that feel like they’ll never raise enough to do any good – I am committed to make their hurt go away, even if it does only happen one dollar, one checked box at a time.
Happy Hump Day!
