What does being naked in my closet have to do with anything? It has everything to do with YOU and ME being the S.O.L.UTION to all the craziness that’s happening in our world. Today I’m seeking and sharing much needed comfort.

When bad things happen…what can WE DO?

WE can be the S.O.L.UTION.

Please don’t feel hopeless or helpless…don’t allow this (or any other) senseless tragedy cause you to lose hope.

THIS IS TRUTH: As long as life’s flowing through you, there’s always hope for healing.

Hope for transformation, and a miracle.

There’s no hope in fear, hate, blame, and the senseless battle with it.

Let’s no longer engage ourselves in senseless battles.

Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in senseless stuff that doesn’t really matter.

What matters most is you, me…WE are all part of the S.O.L.UTION!

You may be asking yourself, “What can I do? How can I make a difference?”

Instead of pointing fingers, hating, being fearful, and losing hope…LET’S RISE UP!

You may not be able to change every situation or another’s heart, but YOU and I can make a choice, and change our own hearts, situations, and lives.

Be encouraged. Be inspired. Stand up. Rise up. Don’t shrink in times like this. Don’t hold your head down. Don’t stand in hatred or blame, or attempt to get revenge.

Ask yourself, “What can I do to be part of the S.O.L.UTION?”

You and I are part of the solution, or we’re part of the problem.

Today’s the day to do something in your world, your community, your home, and within your heart to acknowledge truth.

Love unites. A ray of hope can brighten a dark space.

Hope transforms. Love transforms. Whatever situation you’re in – stand in hope and love.

The power of ONE PERSON can change lives for good or bad.

One person. One voice. One heart. One decision. One desire to make a change, and it all changes.

If it’s not you, then who will it be?

Stop waiting for someone else to come and change your life. Don’t wait any longer. YOU stand UP. You make choices today. You step into the desires of your heart.

You be the voice of TRUTH.

You be the voice of HOPE.

You be the voice of LOVE.

You have so much more power than you think you have.

Stop saying you can’t.

Whatever it is in your life that you feel hopeless, or helpless about, stop saying you can’t. Start focusing on what you can do.

What can WE do to bring comfort? Strength? Peace?

We can start in our own hearts.

Stop talking so much about the problem. Stop pointing fingers at everyone else. Look at your own heart, YOUR story, and the story you choose to tell.

What’s the story you choose to LIVE?

if you desire to help people, start by helping ONE.

Speak to ONE.

Have the FIRST conversation…the one between your own heart and soul.

Ask God to show you YOUR PART.

Then be willing and courageous enough to stand up and speak to ONE.

1 + 1 becomes 11. And exponentially we start to have an effect.

Don’t shrink, and think, “Who am I to say?”

Who are you NOT to say?

Today’s the day. Whatever desire’s in your heart…it’s possible.

Transforming our world starts in a closet. Naked, Unafraid. Unashamed. Unapologetic. Unconditionally loving your life + life’s work well.

It starts in a closet talking into a microphone.

It starts by talking to your neighbors. Reaching out. Simply smiling.

It starts by waking up, my dear. Stand UP. Awaken the HOPE that’s within you.

Stand up and be a voice of truth by living your truth. It starts right here. Right now.

Do not wait. The world needs what only you can bring. The world needs the message in your soul.

You need to listen to it. Get in rhythm with the song of your soul. What makes your heart sing, my dear?

Open your mouth and let it out.

Open your heart and allow yourself to expand, grow, and become the S.O.L.UTION.

Time is limited.

Today. Take what you have at hand. Be present to it. Receive it. Give it with all of your might.
