    Very verklempt watching the film at that moment — bowled over by that generosity of spirit — no scarcity thinking or dualism, just love and awareness of how we each deserve to shine in this world. And I love how you shine, Rachel. So many high notes in thes posts.

  8. We were given hands to applaud others, they were given hands to applaud us … so there’s enough celebration of our achievements to go around. Recognition of others leads to a nobler self.
