"The Paradox of the Prophets: The flip side of carrying pain is this extraordinary gift of holding a spreading joy" ~ Glennon Doyle
This is the first braid I have cut off. I dedicate it to courage.
I am deciding to LEAN IN to the extent that I can to this life, including this season of traveling through the tunnel of cancer treatment.
This will take courage--feeling the fear and doing it anyway.
I accept that living is uncomfortable. I embrace that healing means changing, it means releasing what no longer serves me, even when I don't think I want to.
I am imperfect. My health is also not perfect.
I am willing to be more fully seen, to be vulnerable.
I am ready to ask for what I want.
I open my eyes more fully to witness what is inside and around me.
I am inspired by this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMZvoEj4iig
