…..but I need to add just a little more to this quote to make it applicable to me. It does not seem to matter what my intentions are, the messy, the complicated and the fear always slip in! Sometimes my difficulties arrive by my own ignorant invitation, other times not by choice at all. They just arrive, demanding my attention! I am learning that simply showing up can sometimes be as horribly damaging and dangerous as not showing up at all.
I have no problem showing up, the challenge is showing up knowing what I need to express and how to do so clearly, showing up focused, confident and kindhearted.
No matter how I look at it, honoring others, while maintaining my own honor is ….messy, complicated and for me, filled with fear.
