“The next time you don’t understand someone’s style, language, or way of being, I invite you to pause and be grateful for having eyes and ears to see and hear them. Then take a moment to celebrate their interests the way you would hope they celebrate yours. You don’t have to share their beliefs to be genuinely stoked for them. The world is a party waiting to happen. All you have to do is shout SURPRISE and give them some applause for doing their best with what they’ve been given.”
