It is a call to action, for sure - certainly not for everyone. For those who have the bravery to stand and serve with honor, I am fully grateful. The best the rest of us can do is to make each day count. To live fully with the freedom so passionately fought for. To live our best lives to honor those who put their lives on the line for us. How are you honoring yourself? Are you living in alignment with your true value Do you trust your abilities - so much so that you share them How attentive are you to a daily practice What kind of boundaries do you have for yourself & others Where are you putting your ideas & passion on the line Where are you holding back and not honoring yourself?
