We all too often think we shouldn’t speak about what feels important unless we are on a soapbox or standing in the middle of a crowd.
We are loathe to disrupt the status quo. We’re taught not to.
Sometimes disruption comes through solidarity with others, and looks big. But it doesn’t have to be.
Disruption can be as simple as re-centering so we are stronger and clearer about our work. Disruption can be as simple as taking a breath and saying, “I disagree, and here’s why.”
Disruption can be us saying, through actions and through words, “I am here. How can I help?”
What within or around you needs disruption right now? What needs re-commitment?
Whether it is personal spiritual practice, community building, or justice of all kinds, we can stop thinking “Go big or go home” and start thinking “What is one thing I can do today?”
