So why does it sound like I’ve gone into battle?
This was supposed to be a journey into calmness, clarity and focus. At first, it was all that. So many truths about my work, my life, my direction were pouring into my heart and head that I could barely capture it all. I was steeped in euphoria for about three days.
I was busting to share but I held back. Such personal stuff. Such exposure. Am I really ready?
And then…nothing. Nada. Did hesitation turn off the tap?
It’s not that I lack the courage to be who I am out loud. It’s that I remember the price I’ve paid in the past for revealing too much, being too real, being too much of who I am with some who are NOT compassionate, kind, loving, caring. People who revel in stomping, robbing, shattering. I have learned to protect my deepest thoughts, my most treasured lessons.
Exposure. Is that really what it takes?
