There is Nothing to Prove

We all have our demons to work through. We all have the inner spinner that brings the same story around and around.

"On April 10, 1994, I wrote these words, which I keep on my desk: "Never again will I do anything for anyone that I do not feel directly from my heart. I will not attend a meeting, make a phone call, write a letter, sponsor or participate in any activity in which every fiber of my being does not resound yes. I will act with the intent to be true to myself."

When I accepted that I was a decent, kind and giving person — whether I said yes or no—I no longer had anything to prove. I was once afraid of people saying, "Who does she think she is?" Now I have the courage to stand and say, "This is who I am."

Day Twenty Seven of a 40 day honoring cycle that started 10-1-10 for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month... it is a Mel movement of the heart, a cycle of gratitude in the light of remembrance.  
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.

lots of love,

Melanie
