The kind of change that adds beauty and hope to the world around us isn’t easy to come by. It requires effort, dedication, patience, perseverance, courage, hope, and flexibility. It requires the ability to remain unwavering in the face of criticism, ridicule, and despair. To bring change and hope to the world requires that we trust our gut instinct when we have no logical reason to walk the path that we’re walking. It requires that we get comfortable being uncomfortable.
