If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Embracing Vulnerabilities


Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.     Brené Brown

I chose this is the quote to begin my 64th year.  Happy birthday to me!!!

The beautiful ballerina is my niece:)

    What you said through quote, is what I am striving to do. I can not say that it has been easy so far, with the expectations and aspirations that pull us in different directions. But, yes ! I have been able to be a little more at peace than I was when I was leading the ‘other’ life 🙂
