Consider this poem by Cleo Wade | @cleowade

“we find ourselves saying to the
world,
‘what do we do?’
‘what can I do?’
the better question might be,

‘how am I showing up?’

I ask the world for peace
but
do I show up with peace
when I see my family and friends?
I ask the world to put a stop to
hatred
but
do I show up with love
for not only those I know
but
for those I do not know
do I show up with love
for those ideas conflict with
my own?
we say to the world:
‘please change!’
we need change!’
but
how do we show up to change our own
lives?”

– cleo wade

Ask yourself honestly: “How am I showing up?” “How do I show up to change my own life?”
