i was at the gym this morning doing a workout and, partway through a gruelling set of tricep dips, the virtual instructor said four words that embedded themselves under my skin. he encouraged us all to “lead with the heart“.

i decided, in that moment, that my practise for this year is to embody that sentiment and to deal with the inevitable vulnerabilities that this will place in my path.

standing on the edge of the new year, my prayer is that 2021 is kinder to us all.
