I’m quoting author Jeff Brown for Part 2 of my To Fight or Not series, which began in yesterday’s post :
We are powerful beyond measure, and so deeply vulnerable at the same time. This may seem like a dichotomy, but it isn’t.
We have misunderstood real power. It has been something assertive, non-surrendering, pushing on through.
This is not real power. This is simply willfulness.
Real power is something else– receptivity, open-ness, the courage to keep your heart open on the darkest of days, the strength to feel it all, even when the odds are stacked against you.
Real power is showing up with your heart on your sleeve and absolutely refusing to waste one moment of your life hidden behind edginess and armour. The art of enheartened presence. Now that’s power.
~ Jeff Brown / Ascending with Both Feet on the Ground
And so when I talk about “You’ve got this!” that’s what I mean. Standing in that power. Owning it.
And one more thing.
Life is meant to be lived fully all the way to the end. All the way. No matter what that looks like.
And we have control over that. Because “We’ve GOT this.”
