May I live this day
Compassionate of heart,
Clear in word,
Gracious in awareness,
Courageous in thought,
Generous in love.*

John O’Donohue

Allow events to change you. You have to be willing to grow. Growth is different from something that happens to you. You produce it. You live it. The prerequisite for growth?: the openness to experience events, and the willingness to be changed by them.**
Warren Berger

Am I willing to fail at something new,
To be the stranger,
To admit my need to learn,
To live with uncertainty?

Perhaps I am ready to do what I
do next.

*John O’Donohue’s Benedictus;
**Warren Berger’s Glimmer.
