I had one of those moments this morning where a thought became crystal clear. If I had never experienced hard things – the hardest being the burial my child – I would not be enlarged to move ahead to do big things. The capacity to endure and persevere would not be in place. I feel free, in a sense, to face the unknown without fear. I allow myself to dream bigger dreams, to live more fully. Feelings of inadequacy no longer hold me captive. I have survived extremely difficult circumstances in my past, which have unlocked the domain of a much bigger world and its possibilities. We’ve all been given extraordinary human capacity. It’s time to jump into the deeper waters.
