Beautiful words by Dawna Markova:
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, 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 my life in such a way, so that which comes to me as a seed
goes to the next as a blossom and that which comes to me as a blossom
goes to the next as fruit.
