Yesterday’s participation at the State House was important and challenging. We wanted to reach out to say thank you for your work, your time, your commitment, your energy, your intelligence, your tenacity, your strength, your passion, your creativity, your networking skills, and your awesome support. Whether you were able to be at the state house with us today in body or just in mind and spirit, EVERYTHING mattered! Your help mattered! Our sincerest gratitude to you for everything that you do! Truly our strength is in our collaboration and unity, and it’s important to take moments to pause and appreciate YOU.
We still have quite a journey ahead of us, and we recommend that you take a moment to not only celebrate yourself but also offer yourself a moment of pause and reflection to gather your strength and take stock of our collective power. Find a way to be kind to yourself in whatever manner is most helpful and loving to you, and we’ll be in touch for next time… 😉
