1. Aleppo. There are a million ways to help. Live with compassion, lead with your heart.

All of you, even the overwhelmed parts, the hideous beast, the happy go lucky, energetic, and the perpetually tired. Let's all agree to do what we need to do on the daily to stay less overwhelmed so we can show up, even with all our glamorous baggage.
