Good morning and Happy Monday!

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! May it be a day of service to others, a day of contemplation on the best things you can do the help yourself and this world. Sometimes that service is resting so you may fight the good fight this year.

I know it feels like the world is pretty daunting right now. Nothing seems to be changing, but it is. Particularly when you can’t see it.

But especially when you can’t see it, you must keep working to make things better, for yourself and your community. So, here’s your Motivation for MLK Monday:

It’s not about seeing where all this is going, it’s about taking the first step. The first step to change, to improvement, to strength, and to equality. It’s about having faith that no matter how small the steps are, you’re moving forward to better things because that’s your intention. Don’t be afraid to start: a new job, a new eating regimen, a new workout regimen, standing up for your friends, running for office. Just take the first step on that staircase, and you will make changes.

Walking with you today. Have a great week.
