Life choices

I truly am convinced that the more we live as if we have choices, the more choices we actually do end up having. I don't think anyone can put the following pledge into practice one hundred percent but I do think we can make a substantial beginning:

I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.

-- Dawna Markova
