We are at an inflection point as a country, as humanity, in a climate of change in every possible way.
It’s easy to feel insignificant, unnecessary, inconsequential as we are faced with such monumental challenges.
And yet, we all serve a purpose. For anyone who needs this reminder right now:
You are necessary.
If you are feeling despondent and you feel as if you may do harm to yourself or others, please reach out to local crisis support organizations or call the number in the photo below. I’ve already helped one friend who was at the end of her rope by posting this photo so I’m gonna do it again and again and again.
As for me, I pray each day for help to identify what small action, or necessary introspection, or amplification of another’s voice I can do to make a measurable difference (or sometimes just to get through the day without imploding from the stress we’re all under).
I pray for guidance, for a sign, and it usually comes while Traveling at the Speed of Bike.
And so I continue to do so.
