Worth the risk

The quote above is the second installment in the 3 Day Quote Challenge issued to me by amommasview.  I’ve used this quote in a post before, Do It Anywayfrom back in mid-July.  But it’s still one of my favorites.  For me, it helped me acquire and maintain a level of trust and vulnerability that I sorely lacked, and when I needed it most.  With my formative years being a bit…dysfunctional, trust didn’t always come easy.  And allowing myself to be vulnerable?  Ha!  I think not!  But, at the urging of someone vital in my transformation, who helped me to tear down the brick wall I’d erected around my heart and soul, I read this repeatedly.  It became one of my mantra’s, and is to this day.  It was terrific advice, and has paid huge dividends.  So, as I told myself years ago, do it anyway.  If not for someone else, do it for yourself.  The risk, as it turns out, is worth it.

My songs of the day are:

“Dance Back From The Grave” by Marc Cohn

“Second Hand Heart” by Dwight Yocum

“Ship To Wreck” by Florence and The Machine

“Empty Me Out” by Liz Vice

“Stone Rolling” by Raphael Saadiq
