Today is the day to breathe deeply, square-up our feet on the ground, and face the world with tender resolve. We are called into Being with each new dawn. So many expectations are placed on us, from those around us, and from within. It is now the time to lean into those expectations, and to make what we will of them. Some will be met, others will go unfulfilled. To be resilient is to flow and adapt, to rise again, not admitting defeat, but rather finding new opportunities to excel. And the world is ripe with opportunities. May this day offer us infinite chances to shine, learn, and grow. Success and failure are irrelevant constructs: the engagement is all. We are grateful today for the blessing of resilience. Blessed Be, and Amen.
