I’ve learned that life isn’t necessarily easy, but it’s always worth figuring out. That, if nothing else, has had the most profound effect on my learning that sometimes your circumstances suck, but life doesn’t.
Simply put, a life lived in the shadow of fear is a life wasted. Emerson confirmed it for me this morning over a cup of coffee and a side of sourdough toast. Where I am going from here is a mystery, but it is a mystery i am no longer afraid of. Nothing can be taken from a person who wishes to acquire nothing but the simple joy of knowing where they stand and why.
