Simmering

There’s intentional cooking: choosing, cutting, frying.
And then there’s intentional doing almost nothing: simmering.

Simmering your brain brings out the flavor of creativity and imagination.

Humans mess up

When you mess up, when you didn’t act like you think you should have, don’t be too hard on yourself; it is part of being human.

When others mess up, when they didn’t act like you think they should have, don’t be too hard on them; it is part of being human.

Hope

There is always hope.
Hope, however, does not gather attention
in the same way fear does.

Fear festers, appeals to our fears, and shows us ‘the world as it is.’
Except that it does not show ‘the world as it is’ because it chooses what to show us.

Hope inspires, gives the energy to move, and gives us a glimpse of ‘what can be.’
It does not get a lot of clicks; it is ridiculed as ‘unrealistic’ and challenging to maintain.

A diet of 90% hope and 10% fear would make us all happier people.
Instead, we get fed and feed on a diet of 90% fear and 10% hope.

I choose hope.
And you can too.
