Wearing The Pants

Today I’ve got my big girl pants on. Lately it seems I’ve needed them more often. The state of the world isn’t getting any less challenging, and I’m marching alongside my fellow humans to do what I can to make a positive impact. I won’t get into politics, but suffice it to say the political climate in our country and abroad forces positive action. I’m not doing anything drastic or dramatic, these pants weren’t made for lying in front of tanks after all, but in my own small way I’m lending my voice and leaning in. I call Senators with some regularity, I sign petitions nearly daily and sometimes, when I’m lucky, I even get my hands a little dirty. Like on a recent school day when my daughter and her classmates and I, alongside a few game teachers and parents, visited an underserved school in Los Angeles to help beautify their campus. We planted gardens and painted rainbow stripes along their track and field run. It was hard work, it really took it out of me, and I haven’t felt so good at the end of a day in a long while. The moral here? Put on your big girl pants and lend a hand and your voice wherever you can in support of whatever cause is meaningful to you. It’s good for you, and good for the world.

With love,

Amanda
