Just do the work. And keep doing the work over and over with you heart, with your head, with your hands. Just do the work! This is what I’ve done for a long time now while paying attention. Paying attention through times of great hope and deep sadness, of unknowing, of not caring, of caring, of seeing. And I just do the work.
