How could I think of myself as a Hero? I don’t run into burning buildings or put my life on the line serving our country! That’s what Hero’s do, right!! I learned that that is not the case. A Hero comes in many forms you don’t have to put your life on the line, but you can save a life in very many different ways, including your own.
The cement that surrounds us, that we are heavily chipping away at, holds us back from doing and participating in the Hero’s Journey. I know that the way I was brought up has a lot to do with what holds me back, being told that I am a dreamer – which was bad; that I was too fat, too short, and not worthy. I know that these messages have and continue to hold me back, creates fear and stops me from seeing symbols that show me the meaning to life!
I will work hard to change, to see the symbols, and embrace, as Aimee says, “our heart breaking strengths and glorious defects”! Be a purpose driven self; Be the person you were meant to be – rebirth! Davene reminded me that I am the architect of my own identity, that others censored natural curiosity. So what? Take charge, let go and look for a way into the miracle of my potential.
I always keep my promises.
