I want to choose the Path that lets me live.
I can follow...but I am not a good follower. Let's be honest here. I mean why write or do these prompts if you are not going to be honest. I know I am more of a leader than a follower. But even with that in mind, when I really think about this question what comes to mind is this plaque I made after taking two Brave Girl courses.
I just want to live.
This quote came to mind when I started writing. I think for me it is very true. Plus it is something I dearly want...someone to be my friend.
“Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
The Path I desire is the Path that allows me to Live. Whatever that may be. I don't just mean Live as far as breathing and being here on the planet. I don't mean Live as far as get up, go to work, come home, cook dinner, go to sleep. THAT is not living to me.
I mean LIVE. Live life exploring and doing and being the me I was meant to become. I mean Living life with exuberance and joy and happiness in my heart because I am not just "getting" to do the things I want to do and live in life, but I am making it happen, making it count, making my life matter, making a difference, making life equals living life!
I thought I was doing this. I thought I was Living Life. But even me, even someone as active and busy as me found out that I was doing better than most, but there is always room for improvement. Sometimes, we need a push, encouragement or someone to believe in us for us to be Brave Enough to make our own path.
Thank you Brave Girls for helping me make my own path and helping me have the courage to Live It!
