“There came a time when the risk to remain
tight in a bud became more painful than the
risk it took to blossom”
– attributed to Anais Nin
So many of us live our lives in fear. Fear keeps us from moving forward and growing and leaves us feeling small and diminished. I have found that what has enabled me to move past fear is to allow myself to acknowledge and feel the pain of living under pressure in tension and dread. I focus on letting love and self-compassion open and expand my heart. This is what makes it possible to feel in touch with my purpose, vision and energy.
Are you keeping yourself constricted or allowing yourself to bloom?
