Write Your Life! - May 2016 - Bonus Week: DOING - Wisdom from Dawna Markova
For this final post of the Write Your Life! online mini-session, I would like to share a prayer with you. I don't remember where I first read it, but it was written by a three-time cancer survivor and I think it gives great advice. Don't live in fear. Open your heart. Become who you were sent here to become. I hope it inspires you to continue the work you have started by writing your life.
"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 significant, 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 as fruit."
