Beyond Survival

Day 232…

I am who I am because of everything around me and within me.  After my son died I went deep into the darkness, scribbling  my thoughts and fears.  What was my part in this tragedy?  How do I respond?  How do I find my place in the world again when everything scares me?  How do I reconnect honestly with others?

It has not been easy watching the answers to these questions take shape on the page.  I must own my thoughts and actions.  But it is the path I’ve chosen in order to move beyond mere survival.  To find renewable sources of serenity and courage.

Norman Vincent Peale
One of the greatest moments in anybody’s developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is.

Sarah Ban Breathnach
Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully.
