Make the Pledge to Choose Love in the New Year

In January 2018, I embraced the commitment to Choose Love, and I am determined to carry that pledge into 2019. I pledged to embrace others despite our differences, to include everyone regardless of their beliefs, and to actively prioritize love over hate or division. Will you join me in making this pledge for 2019?

Amidst all the negativity in the world today, the need for love has never been greater. I firmly believe that choosing love is simpler than choosing hate. Love is innate; it's something we're all born with, while hate is learned and requires conscious effort. Let's strive for love in 2019.

Always Choose Love! #Choose Love

Honestly, choosing love has become almost instinctual for me. Throughout every facet and situation in my life, I've strived to embrace love. As many of you know from reading the “My Story” section on my site, my childhood was marked by abuse and neglect. Being biracial in an all-Caucasian community subjected me to a lot of hatred. Despite these challenges, I clung to the belief that there must be a greater purpose for my life, and I made the conscious choice to love those who didn't reciprocate that love.
