An Act of Faith, Courage, and Trust

To create
you must take a leap of faith

You must reach out
with tendrils of trust
that the wonder will be there
waiting
and that it will consent to a connection

You must bravely reach in
choose to travel deep into the anguish
risk being overwhelmed
misunderstood
condemned
all with the flailing, wild intuition
that pulling fragments of that pain into the light
will bring with it
long awaited strands of healing

With hope
but no preconceptions
you release your defenses
stand vulnerable
amidst the swirling awareness that
in daring to create
you are opening yourself up
to another radical shift
in your own transformation

        Aww, you’re very welcome 🙂 & thank you for your kind compliment on my blog’s name 🙂 I’ve learned to embrace who I am because circumstances may change my appearance or physical being, but I am who I am. I always will be, and I’m proud of it 🙂
