I am feeling reenergized to do the work that I know I'm capable of doing. I really appreciate the PDFs, because they take these big theoretical topics and make them so understandable. It will be easier for me to share and communicate my beliefs by refering to these resources as opposed to explaining the theoretical ideas behind them.
I think I really needed the reminders about how to engage with others. Sometimes all we need is a reminder of the commitment we have made. It is invigorating to remember that the change begins with what I choose to do as an advocate. The best reminder is that laying the groundwork is something I can do with compassion and empathy, not frustration and impatience.
