“Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.”
– L. R. Knost
I say, please be dismayed. Allow your heart to break and bleed. It’s in this unfortunate place where paradoxically we are grandly moved because we have to feel. Feel it. Feel it all. No bypassing. And choose that unconditional love. Which is your light and truth. It’s just YOU. There can be no other than you and what you bring and offer. It’s unique and very much needed. And the “we”needs it.
