Matthew's Mind

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

Thank you to everyone who disagrees with me; your thoughts open my worldview.

Thank you to those I collide politically with; that’s the beauty of being blessed an American.

Thank you for the people who have different priorities in life; it strengthens my own.

Thank you to anyone who looks different, dresses different, talks different or acts different than I do. Without you, the world would be a very boring place.

Thank you to everyone who reads this and is open to new perspectives. That open architecture is we collectively move forward.

This Thanksgiving we’ll all experience gratitude toward those items we value most – family, friends, health and happiness. That’s par for the course, and worthy of pause. But the same last year, this and next. Yet if you feel the way I do, a second order of thanks (in thought and most importantly action), to everyone who’s not in our immediate circle is needed more than ever. Inclusion, not division. Bridges, not walls. Humanity at its core is something to intentionally appreciate.

Happy Thanksgiving.
