Hi beautiful women,
I don't watch television much, but I seem to be drawn to "OWN", The Oprah Winfrey Network. I learn something deep about myself almost every time I watch it on Sunday evenings. Recently, I watched Shania Twain's documentary, "Why Not", and I resonated so much with Shania's childhood sadness and immense responsibilities as well as her fears as a woman. There's always something life changing when you learn that powerful, impenetrable women have some of the same fears you and I have. I cried through the whole series watching Shania conquer her fears standing naked, truthful and raw in front of the whole world. The truth really does set us free and that's so powerful. We can fly when we are brave enough to be deeply truthful with ourselves and the world in spite of the fear. I have spent so much of my life being ashamed of my fears and feeling so alone with them. When I was a child, I had to be brave for my little brother and sister, as I was their only rock. Even now, I rarely talk about fear or weakness with my brother, Thovas, as I want him to see me as invincible and capable of anything so he won't feel vulnerable in this big old scary world. I know now that the only way to heal from the monsters in my head is to confront them no matter who is watching. It's finally about me and God this time and I deserve to be free. For the first time in my life I get that! I'm only on the beginning of my brave path and I literally thank Shania for passing the torch to me. Ready, Set, Go!! I have so much work to do, but with love I can do it and so can you --- Come with me.
"Love is what we are born with, fear is what we learned here."
"To be a star you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine the brightest."
So much love to all of you,
PS --- This is Shania's new, beautiful song, "Today is your day".
