in honor of courage

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on to fruit.
~Dawna Markova

I've posted this before but as I'm tapping away on the June materials for Courage, it seemed like the perfect thing to share. This poem continues to inspire me just as much (if not more) than the first time I read it in O Magazine.

Begin to flex your courage muscles's gonna be a good month. :)
