Optimistic, perspective/point of view affects everything we do. The thing that trips up most people is the notion that change is all or nothing. That line of thinking is true in some instances, but not all. When we as toddlers embarked on learning to walk, the process was a gradual one. Our tiny, little brains had to move beyond fear to embrace encouragement, build confidence, discernment (when to try and when not), and resilience to try again and again. That same principle applies to building a more inclusive environment, but it all begins with the desire to build a more inclusive environment.

Love one another.
