Courage to look beneath the surface

In developing our creative muscles to make fresh paths, we need to face the things that would hinder us.

And this will be different for each of us.

Whether it’s the voices in our head that repeat words spoken over us long ago.

Or the fear of being different from those around us. Or anything else…

Whatever it is requires courage sparked by hope.

Hope that it will be worth pushing through.

Because now more than ever, we need people who are becoming these kinds of pathmakers.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
