We’re all born with this amazing knowingness of who we are and then somehow along the way we just...forget. or probably more appropriately stated, we learn it away, being very powerfully pushed and herded into shapes and jobs and relationships that someone else, some society, some education system, some family upbringing decided for us. Not nefariously, but out of love and concern. But in the process, we lose the ability to hear our own voice. And believe me, as much of an overachiever as I have been in my life, as much success as some would perceive that I have had, there is absolutely nothing that satisfies my need to live life, fully contributing and participating open throttle, to my absolute capacity for joy, passion, forgiveness and love, as does answering the call of my inner voice. Because that voice has no agenda other than to live truthfully and love fully. And that's what this symbol reminds me, every day.
