Favorite word: Presumption

Presumption: a belief that something is true even though it has not been proved law : an act of accepting that something is true until it is proved not true: willingness to do something without the right or permission to do it (Merriam Webster)

Many of us could use a little more presumption in our lives. Some employ way too much. But most of us are waiting. Waiting for permission. Waiting to be told we’re okay, we’re enough. Waiting for proof.

Humble is a virtue. Compassion, too.

But there’s a place for presumption. It’s how great things happen.
