How we choose to communicate says much about how we engage with the world. Defiance, rigid self-righteousness and dismissiveness are less productive and less effective at getting our own needs met than adapting an attitude of compassion, cooperation and gratitude. Mistake these not, though, as being weak or pliable; quite the opposite, when we engage with caring both for others as well as for universal agency, we become more confident, less fearful and better able to ride the storm waves of life. Choosing our words and choosing our attitude are exactly the same thing – let us choose wisely. We are grateful for attitudes of Grace. Blessed Be, and Amen.
