We hide behind busyness and perfection because showing up and being ourselves is frightening.

If we learn to step away from the shame we all live with in our minds then we free ourselves from the fear.

Freedom comes when we learn that the stories we shackle ourselves with were created by us.

We are not the shame, the stories or our thoughts. We can come out of hiding.

I never give in

We feel strength is to do with keeping going no matter what.

There is this ego, macho, bullshit thing about never giving up.

The fact is, there is bravery and vulnerability in knowing when to take a break or to admit that something isn’t working or it no longer suits you to do something.

We can change or stop anything we want whenever we want. Each unfolding moment is a chance to start again and take a new direction in our journey.
