Courage



I wish I'd known from the beginning that I was born a strong woman.

What a difference it would have made!

I wish I'd known that I was born a courageous woman;

I've spent so much of my life cowering.

How many conversations would I not only started...

but finished if I'd known I possessed a warrior's heart?

I wish I'd known that I'd been born to take on the world;

I wouldn't have run from it for so long,

but run to it with open arms."

“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz.
Learn your way around loneliness.
Make a map of it.
Sit with it, for once in your life.
Welcome to the human experience.
