|Stumps are trees too.|
~Edward O. Wilson
I think the same would apply to people, don't you? I hope you think so too. Because, thankfully, someone
eventually steps up,
sees it differently and says so,
says what needs to be said,
shuts down negativity,
reminds us, "not everything is about you,"
finally says what everyone was thinking,
finally cuts through the crap,
takes the lead (and inspires several other someones),
takes the time to actually listen,
squeezes our shoulders just when we need a bit of courage,
lets in all the fresh air so everyone can breathe again,
is vulnerable enough to be honest,
admits to being wrong,
takes responsibility (even when someone else probably should),
forgives it all,
says yes or says no,
and both are absolutely right.
(you might not even suspect)
changes us all.
Are you someone?
