we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

find an ample measure of my own joy.

knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
