for one day

Here’s what I think. I think that for one day, at least one single day, you should give up any insecurity or inhibition or fear that has convinced you that being kind and honest and real is uncool or stupid or weak.

24 hours is all I ask. 24 hours of listening a little bit harder and really hearing what someone has to tell you.

A time for taking the effort to empathize. A time for allowing yourself to feel whatever it is that you’ve been so afraid to. To feel what you need to.

Just try, for that one day, to leave the world a better place when you go to sleep than when you woke up.

“You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery. Be a warrior for love.”
