I let the mandala tell me what she wants to BE. I follow the curves and let the mandala have her voice, because that is what she needs. She needs room to play and to breathe and be imperfect.
I had no plans to start any business, but all I knew is after 11 years of working for others, I couldn’t continue to work at another soul-sucking job. I clearly remember saying out loud “Universe, I’m taking a leap here. Catch me”
Thank you for hurting me, misunderstanding me, vilifying me, teasing me and leaving me. Thank you so much for being just who you were at the perfect time in my life.
It is because of your role in my life that I am stronger.
It is because of your lack of compassion that my own compassion grew and that I can extend you kindness.
It is because you were closed off that I decided not to shutdown and instead I chose to open more.
It is because you teased me and bullied me so ruthlessly that I learned how to accept and embrace ALL people, with no prejudice.
It is because of your attempt to silence me that I learned how to have my voice and speak my truth.
My courage and I found each little by little.
Then we courted each other…
Then we took the plunge…
Until one day it became a holy marriage and then it was game fucking on.
Courage and I are now married for life and it is a holy and sacred union.
