When life feels like shittake, make COOKIES

Remember yesterday, when I talked about how taking action, no matter how small, matters? Doing the little things, rather than getting stuck in the muck? It works! And it is healing. And here's a beautiful example...

My cousin is a high school teacher in the public schools in Hilton Head, SC. She is one of the many people in my life who have been working for years to make a difference in the lives of young people in public schools and needless to say all of the political happenings with with the Department of Education have taken a toll on her ability to stay positive. 

This morning, this post graced my facebook feed and my first thought was "YES!!!! Every little positive action makes a ripple!" 

I asked her if I could share this with the Power Flower Project community (Yep, if you are reading this, you are a part of it!!) She responded with these words, which I find so heartfelt and true...

So, yes, I may sound like a broken record...BUT at least it's a positive broken record. Every action we take to share kindness is an opportunity to balance out all of the shittake that we are faced with every day. We have to MAKE, FIND, and ACKNOWLEDGE the beauty when we experience it. 

Onward, Power Flower People...may we be kind and loving EVEN in our darkest hours.
