Standing in reality

…is neither glossing over things and putting on a pretty face… nor wallowing in self-pity in the hope that someone else will come to the rescue.

It’s standing in the honour of the now and as is. Knowing that today is today, not yesterday or tomorrow.

Believing that in our frailty and mess-ups, our uncertainty, learnings and celebrations, that we are enough.

Enough to look reality in the face and say I am here. Now.

And it’s even better when we can do it together.
