How To Show Up Each Day

(Author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) Charlene Costanzo wishes you a life of hope, laughter, and kindness.

We show up every day with kindness and laughter. We breathe in resilience and breathe out creativity. We strive to embody the change we want to see in the world. We invite you to join us.” – Lisa Kahn-Allen

This is Lisa’s personal and business mission statement. I hear her words as encouragement to all to embrace life with joy, to treat one another kindly, and to bring our best into the day. I also hear an urging to cultivate peace, and more. To be resilient, creative, and lighthearted. And to embody our ideals.

It’s a tall order. But every part of her mission statement is a worthy and powerful way to live. What part speaks most to you? How do you wish to show up today?

I hope this day includes kindness and laughter for all. 


With love and joy, 
Charlene
