true essence

paw prints at owens beach

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
Ambrose Redmoon

You. Hold on tight to what you know. Sit for just a moment and take a breath. And notice what you know to be true. What you know to be real. What resonates deep within. Breathe. Just notice. It may be that only shadows of what you know to be true appear today. And tomorrow. And the day after that. And the day after that. But, when the moment comes and you make the choice to hold on to courage by your fingertips as you acknowledge the fear that lives within you…that moment that is today…that is the moment when the shadows shift into the glowing flame that is your heart. That is the moment you begin to become the true essence of yourself.
