Taking Heart

What would feel like to take heart just a little bit more today?

To remind yourself that you’re worth loving?

To remind yourself that people are indeed working for good in the world, even in the midst of pain?

To remind yourself that you’ve been surprised at other times, so why not be surprised by goodness again?

To remind yourself that taking heart, while vulnerable, is really giving heart by allowing ourselves to have hope and trust, and that this can actually lean into the creation of goodness in the world?

You’re worth that risk.

Your neighbor is worth that risk.
