This is a poem he wrote recently. It inspired and resonated with me in every way. I hope you get as much out of it as I did.

Show up.

Even if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Show up.

If you don’t know where to start or how to do something… ask.

Show up.

Don’t post or write about your anxiety or how bad life is unless you’ve pushed through or learned something from it that day.

Show up.

Your fears, doubt and anxious thoughts will want you to hide, but instead……

Show up.

Even though it may not seem like it, you have a choice.

Show up.

Life is messy, mangled, confusing and wonderful all at the same time.

Show up.

Regardless of what your mind tells you, you are brave, strong and confident. We all are.

Show up.

Life doesn’t wait for when you think you’re ready.

Show up.

Stuff up, fail, stuff up even more, make your mistakes magnificent.

Show up.

Talk and write about the lessons learned and insights gleaned.

Show up.

Don’t scroll your life away.

Show up.

This is your show.

So show up.
