There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.- Anais Nin
I love this quote. Maybe because it holds so much truth for me. It has only been in the last few years that I have had the courage to step out of my comfort zone. Taking the risk to learn and grow...to blossom into the full potential of ME!
In each of us there lies an unrealized possibility.
A dormant seed just waiting to BLOOM into its full potential.
We each have hopes and dreams. But for whatever reason we find safety in that tightly woven bud- fearful of ascending to our higher aspirations.
But there is no courage withering on the vine.
only a life lived with regrets!
As I poured over each sweet comment left for the self-portraiture giveaway I was moved by each heartfelt comment. There were so many who wanted to take that leap of courage to step out of their comfort zone- too realize a hope or dream they had for themselves, willing to let their light shine I wish I could offer Vivienne's course to each one who commented. If only I could! Random number generator chose lucky #8 - Susan from Hometown Girl.
Yes, in each of us there is that seed. Like a tiny ember of fire. It waits to burst into a flaming light. A beautiful brilliant light for each of us to see and grow and learn from. The flowering bud can't help but open up to the brilliance of the light and it BLOOMS!
