What is the greatest risk?
Letting go of what people think?
or letting go of how I feel, what I believe or who I think I am?
The biggest shift I had in life was the moment I understood, ‘I was not in control.’
I wasn’t going down without a fight though! and it took the death of my son for me to face my deepest vulnerability, and to understand, this is the most precious space for healing.
Control is just another name for fear, and I had plenty of it. I convinced myself each day I could control most circumstances and for most of the time, it worked.
However, to remember we are human and vulnerable, we have to let go of our ego and all the stories we have attached to it.
Never easy, I know. But in the avoidance of it, we lose the deepest connection to ourselves, life and to those we love.
Deep down we all know what it takes to be vulnerable. To admit, ‘Hey, I don’t know what to do and I need help’ or ‘I have decided to face my pain, my loss, my shadow self and I am willing to risk it all to find the answers, and my pathway to heal.’
That is the true meaning of courage, of strength, of power and the meaning of life.
And so next time, we shrug something off, or convince ourselves it’s not important or can wait another day, think again.
Because no one is guaranteed tomorrow, or the chance to change our life in this moment.
