The pace within knows when to push harder and when to pull back. The pace within understands the difference between moments of survival and moments of thriving. The pace within draws its strength directly from the heart. The pace within reminds us that we are doing it, that we will.
We get so busy thinking about our lives we often forget to be in our lives. We forget that failure and fault are necessary evils on the path to joy, and if we really want something then we have to get back in the arena and fight for it - most often with time, space and attention.
That is what happened when I showed up for myself and decided to peel back my layers of insecurity just long enough to connect with my reflection…. A reflection that for a moment allowed me to arrive at the doorstep of freedom… Freedom to joyously love every curve, for they each have a purpose and a story… a story that starts with shoulders that have carried the weight of the world as I know it, while shouldering the burdens of all I hold dear for too many years.
