This has been an eventful year of growth for me so far. How about you?
I really felt it this week. I almost can't describe it as it came in what seemed an overwhelming stack of demands. Not just from work, but life demanding more of me. Encouraging me to free myself of fears and GROW!
This morning I ran across a poem I wrote several years ago on such a day. It made me wonder again at the miracle that comes when we reach inside to free our courage to blossom:
The Courage to Blossom
by Debbe Kennedy
Early morning sunshine.
Tide was in, the waves in sweet serenade.
My day began.
Long list of things from unfinished days.
Deadlines looming, hollering out in venom doubts.
The courageous heart drowns out the noise.
It believes, pushing upward, upward.
Looking out to see the finish near.
A quiet stirring, a tiny movement begins it all.
Unfolding petals, reaching, reaching.
Gaining strength in warm mid-day sun.
Stretching, stretching beyond the shadows.
Falling into perfect place.
The work is done.
I blossomed today.
"...And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was
more painful than the risk to bloom." --- Anais Nin
