On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I watched David Letterman’s new show on Netflix - it was the inaugural episode and his guest was Barack Obama. I wasn’t expecting to have such a visceral reaction when, during Letterman’s opening monologue, the camera cut to Obama standing backstage. I immediately started crying. My daughter looked at me with the widest eyes and asked me why, and while so many thoughts of despair and disgust about the current state of this country jolted through my mind, I just looked at her and said, “I miss him. I just really miss him.” ⠀
I don’t think I’m the only one who has had this kind of reaction when seeing Barack Obama over the past year. To think that less than two years ago, he was leading this country, and now....I feel like we’ve taken 100 steps backward.

Although things seem senseless and upside down right now, I take solace in what Representative John Lewis, civil rights legend who marched Selma with MLK Jr., stated during the episode: “I think in the whole struggle, there may be some setbacks, some delays, some interruption...but when you take a long, hard look, we will get there. We will redeem the soul of America. We will. We all have a role to play. We can all do something, we can all make a contribution.”

So today, we celebrate the man who paved the way for Barack Obama to become this nation’s 44th president. Through his courage, determination, and sacrifice, Martin Luther King, Jr. created the massive shift that will continue to be felt for centuries to come.

Today, and every day, may we follow MLK Jr.’s example. “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” We must keep moving forward. ⠀

Yes, the art was remarkable, but the architecture of @dallasmuseumart impressed me just as much. #jacksonpollock

2017 wasn’t the *kindest* year in memory, so I am partnering with @axiology_beauty to pledge to be extra mindful of demonstrating kindness this year. Kindness to people, kindness to animals, kindness to the environment, and the one many of us forget, kindness to ourselves. (Hey, I’m talking to you! Give yourself some grace this year, okay?) Join me in being #kindtoallkind in 2018. ❤️✨
