It's quiet around here -- real life is happening every where, I am sure, so I am just going to leave this right here for those who could use a little locker-room pep talk to keep going. Chin up. Keep going.
There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fear mongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise with skinned knees and bruised hearts; We choose owning our stories of struggle, Over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.
When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye.
We will not be characters in our stories. Not villains, not victims, not even heroes. We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings.
We craft love from heartbreak,
Compassion from shame,
Grace from disappointment,
Courage from failure.
Showing up is our power. Story is our way home. Truth is our song. We are the brave and brokenhearted. We are rising strong.”
Ol Teddy. That's one of my favorite quotes of all time. I did some research on him for a leadership course I went through some years ago and that man was an impressive one. Thanks for posting. Very motivational.
