The Journey

18 Dec

I know some of you are being brave and bold RIGHT NOW.  You are saving your own lives.  Bravery doesn’t always come in historic gestures.  You might be starting a new job like Karen.  Getting your own place like Annabel.  Finishing up that first semester of college like Auburn.  Fighting for your life like Kristina.  Mothering an infant like Jackie.  Finding your way in the dark like…you know who you are.   Choosing to live another sober day.  Choosing to live.

Choose to live, again, today.  Save the only life you can save.  

Here’s some advice from Mary Oliver.

    Ashley,

    Stumbled upon this website that I think you will like:

    http://ignitelight.tumblr.com/page/61#472

    Full of beautiful photography and inspirational, spirit shaking quotes. Odd that you use a Mary Oliver quote today and I just found her for the first time on this site, last nite.

    Funny how life works that way.

    Happy Trails, God Bless and God Speed,

    Bo

      Thanks, Bo! I’m starting to think that Mary Oliver might be my new favorite poet. She keeps popping up everywhere I look!

    Bravery isn’t the absence but the mastery of it.

      Bravery is not the absence of FEAR but the mastery of it.
