"Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me. Cheryl Strayed.
I used to run on fear. Fear colored everything I did or didn't do. I didn't feel safe in the world, or strong. Definitely not brave.
And then something happened. A touch of love - love that stayed, love that refused to give up, love that showed me a different way.
Because of that love, fear slowly shifted to faith. Faith that I can, Faith that I will. Faith that I am safe and strong and brave. Faith trumped the dance of fear.
Today I know, I can do anything. That love is still there, championing me on.....whispering every day, you can, you will, you're safe and strong and brave.
Grateful for love that persisted and turned the darkness into light.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
