Hellooo there, dear friend.
At the tail-end of this Wednesday eve’
– at least in my time-zone :) –
a blessing from my heart to yours …

May you raise your voice and shout an exuberant Yes! to your unique ways to be and do.

May you see new ways to give, serve, and connect with those around you. Uncover and offer your one-of-a-kind gift to those near and far. Share and listen to stories. Take little or big steps. Move with bistari (a fave Nepali word for “slowly”) and cultivate robust rhythms in your PoPs (Places of Pause).

May you tend to what is capturing your attention in the struggles of those in your common human family. Explore what is your brave and wholehearted response. As you do, watch for it: the floodgates of comPASSION will open.

They just will.

May you celebrate differences anew and increase your capacity to love in thought, word, and deed. This shift will be surprising in scope, touching your family, next-door neighbors, good friends whose hearts are breaking … and expand to those far away.

May you be present, with eyes wide open to those around you, you embrace a shared humanity of belonging, grateFULLY contemplate your gifts, and eagerly look for opportunities to share what is yours. Here, you are not striving or trying harder, but something better moves you.

May you discover how compassion is a colossally compelling force.

Take some time to ask for—and listen to— compassion’s beckoning. Stay rooted in the day-to-day realities of your life. Look for places of inspiration and clarity about what matters most to you.

These clues for your next steps will be there.
I have a hunch
they are here
right now.

Sometimes you just need
to pause, adjust your focus,
and look in order to find them.

It’s the primary fuel for all we do.
This kind of love sustains fierce dreams.
It also ignites action.

It’s strong and brave like you. It inspires us to take small steps and contemplate massive leaps that matter as much at home as abroad. It invites us to care and dare for one another, through shared story and collective experience.

This kind of love – and compassion – fuels change.

Annnnnd, my my love – what do YOU believe in?
What is your fuel for life –
in good times and the gut-punch,
overwhelming, or
“blah” days?
(‘Cuz we all have ’em!)

Ohhhh, how you are loved.
Ohhhh, how we belong to each other.
Ohhhh, let’s standTALL together and light up the world!

xo, -Sarah Davison-Tracy, Seeds of Exchange ❤️🙏🏻🌏
