"Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”
- Marie Curie quotes (French Physicist, twice winner of the Nobel Prize, 1867-1934)
Ah, 2009 - I am embraced and filled with an exhilerating energy to be thankful, confident, and hopeful for today and the short future in front of me.
As I sift through my unique collection of pictures, cards, and notes of my past, I am quickly reminded of my deep conflict between pleasing others around me vs. living for joy and movement in transparency, love, and faith.
We do hold the power to turn our life onto a narrow path.
This narrow path may seem lonely, dangerous, intimidating, hard, and unknown....but, when you stop to actually see what your walking on, you become mesmerized by what you have just endured...and your eyes become wide and open with what is yet to come.
Thank you God for this week, for today, and for each day to come.
