Why do we do it? Why do we get up time and time again …after life has dealt us blows and stand to face the dawn with renewed hope? Why do we dare to dream a new dream, knowing that it may be taken from us at any moment? Why do we find our voice and dare to speak our story, after it has fallen again and again on deaf ears? Why do we persist when others fall back? Why do we struggle to bloom when others give up, shrivel and fade?
We do it ... because we know the truth …that the trials of life and love give us the opportunity to either harden like steel into a sword – ready to pierce those who try to get to close to us…or we can choose to melt in the flames and rise from the ashes; to become new and whole again. To take all that we are and all that we ever have been and rework the pieces into a new, stronger, wiser person ... the next evolution of ‘us’. So in that renaissance, we stand ready to face a new day.
