On this Thursday of Advent, Virginia is contemplating a quote from a favorite author, Brené Brown.
“Often the result of daring greatly isn’t a victory march as much as it is a quiet sense of freedom mixed with a little battle fatigue…Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brené Brown, Daring Greatly
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like wading into the dark stuff in my life. It’s easier to stuff it in the back of a closet & padlock the door. Ignore it. But here’s the thing – tough stuff has a way hijacking us if we don’t deal with it. If we don’t face it, we can’t heal &/or move forward.
Or, maybe the path ahead is dark? If we don’t exert Courage (with a capital ‘C’) to open our hearts to explore the darkness we’ll be stuck forever where we are. We’ll never know how the powerful the Light within us is – and can be.
grace, peace & courageous Light
