I wasn’t failing. In fact, it was the complete opposite.
You're braver than you think.
The poet, teacher and author of Inside the Miracle explains how to keep ourselves open to new possibilities, even when the hardest times strike.
So this is a simple plea: Demand strong feelings from your relationship. Demand awe and inspiration-not all the time, but at least with some regularity. Do. Not. Settle. If you're not saying aloud (or at least to yourself) "I love you" to your mate in six months or less, hit the "next" button. Have the courage to believe that something better is out there.
We show courage on a daily basis because our lives and the lives of those we love matter to us. When we feel deeply passionate about something, we find courage easily -- for example we find superhuman strength to protect our children. So let us find that same passion and courage for ourselves.
"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." -- Soren Kierkegaard
