“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Sometimes we are motivated by love. (such as, because I love & honor myself I will practice self-care today)
Sometimes we are motivated by pain. (Such as, the pain of playing small and silencing my voice has become more painful than taking the risk of being heard and doing what I feel I must do).
Whichever motivates you today, I applaud you for taking the risk and blossoming.
