Be kind to yourselves today.
Be kind to others today.
I mean… EVERY day.
They want us to be afraid.
They want us to stop growing.
They want us to stop having children.
They want us to be silent.
Don’t you dare.
Don’t you dare hold your voice hostage.
Don’t you dare stop writing.
Don’t you dare confine yourself to a corner.
Don’t you dare wilt and refuse to bloom again.
Grieve. It is necessary.
Then, keep moving.
Keep making them uncomfortable with your brilliance.
You are so beautiful.
So much light they wish to extinguish.
Continue to shine.
Burn everything foolish enough to play with you.
