My tiara IS quite fabulous and although some days I feel like it needs a little polishing, all in all, I have taken my life into my own hands.
While all this was going through my head, last night, I read Glennon Doyle Melton's latest blog piece. You MUST read it. I'll wait. Click HERE.
::: OK, I'm done waiting :::
It's such an amazing way to describe who we are as humans. And despite loving and applauding the column, and despite agreeing one million percent with it, and despite "making" you read it, I am SO not ready to even go there. Yet.
Perhaps, just maybe, THAT will be my birthday gift, to myself, for this year. To use my tiara to help me articulate my sacred scared. THAT would most certainly be taking matters into my own hands now, wouldn't it?
To show up. To carry on with amazing ideas, thoughts and things despite it really never being the perfect time, or having the perfect body, or the right amount of money, or any of the other nonsense we tell ourselves.
I started TGHR with a boatload of obstacles in my head. Still, I knew I had to make this happen. I wanted to get my college degree and I did that. There are other things happening in my world that I have somehow managed to make happen and some of the obstacles involved are pretty significant.
But there is so much more I want to do. To try. To see. To be. I want to be able to belt out this song and really, REALLY mean it. I'm getting there. Day by beautiful day.
It's been a wild and crazy year from 2013 to 2014. I cannot even pretend to fathom what this next twelve months will bring.
Stay for the ride, will you. Please?
I finally made it here
Feeling like I'm where I belong
