I treasure it. I say it slowly. Allowing the compliment to seep into my psyche. The lady who coordinated my class I taught on Monday said my class was ‘insightful’. Sometimes when I have a victory or a success, I go back and tell my young little self. Waking up from her drowsy sleep under her Holly Hobby quilt. I whisper in her soft warm ear. “You did something great!” “You taught a class, can you imagine….dear heart!” I imagine my heart as a little girl taking courage from it. Knowing her life would have a purpose. That she would have a story to tell. Something to share to inspire and help others. I feel so humbled. And thankful. Thankful for every experience of desperation that made me tap into Potential. Every darkened lonely path that taught me Faith. Made me cling to Hope. That opened my eyes to Possibility. I think of the word Vulnerability. Brene Brown, the author and public speaker, helps us so much to understand the power of it. In order to move out of our comfort zones and into our purpose, we must embrace Vulnerability. Stepping out onto the ledge. The Ledge of Uncertainty. Maybe I’ll sink. Maybe I’ll swim. Either way I will grow and evolve and that excites me. If we care too much about what others think or their opinion, we never will. If we have something that burns within us, that’s our purpose. My daughter Helen said after I made her and her fiancee sit through a dry run class, “Mom, you have a heart beat. So you have a purpose. I think you’ve discovered yours.” She has no idea how much I loved her and her sweet introspective heart at that moment. I repeat her words to myself many times a day. Everyone of us has a heart beat. Everyone of us has a purpose. Love you all.
