"I don't want to be like Cinderella
sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
waitin' for somebody to come and set me free..."
I heard the other day that we should never be the heroes of our own stories, and that made me wonder, "Why not?" I think we need to be our own heroes, to rescue ourselves from what limits us, traps us, plagues us, or wants to hold us down. That doesn't mean that we don't need help and guidance as we make our way, but we do have to be the one to initiate the movement towards our own salvation. Of this I feel certain.
I have the courage to show up for myself, whatever that means on any given day.
