Be Better

Be better.
Apparently, this is my phrase for 2020.
I’m not exactly sure what it means.
I’m not really sure where it came from.
But in recent weeks I have noticed that it keeps coming to my mind and spilling from my lips.
I find myself saying it under my breath with a deep longing for something different than what we are currently experiencing,
“God, we have to be better.”
I find myself shouting it when I read about or witness ways that we have let one another down once again,
“We HAVE to be better.”
I find myself thinking it when I slip into small mindedness or begin thinking that somehow my perspective is superior to that of another,
“Come on Brian. Be better.”
This phrase isn’t about self improvement or achievement. Rather, I think it is a challenge to be, to exist, to live in this world, better.
Be better.
May 2020 be a year of self reflection, discovery, and action.
May 2020 be a year to be better.
