The Courage to Change

I listen to and read this power piece on the recent sobriety of the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation. They collectively, have chosen to break free from the powerful addiction of alcohol, and move out from the dark cloud of oppression.

The courage to change is probably right up there with dying when it comes to something we fear and chose not to think about. The shift could be small (noticing an errant behavior) or massive (choosing sobriety or leaving a bad relationship). Either way the task can seem daunting.

I hope you’ll view this video and read the article and be impacted in some way. Our collective shift is important to the survival of our species. But it all starts with small, individual steps.

Peace
