How wild is your heart?

"The mark of a wild heart is living out the paradox of love in our lives. It's the ability to be tough and tender, excited and scared, brave and afraid –– all in the same moment. It's showing up in our vulnerability and our courage, being both fierce and kind." Brené Brown

Always straddling the tension and trying not to tap out.
Forever convincing ourselves that we can hold so many contradictory pieces and feelings.
Not only are tension and contradictory pieces OK and normal — they’re the magic sauce.
Carl Jung called the paradox one of our most valued spiritual possessions and a great witness to the truth. He wrote, “Only the paradox comes anywhere near to comprehending the fullness of life.”
Sometimes beautiful. Sometimes terrible. Always deeply human.

Where do you belong?

“Stop walking through the world looking for confirmation that you don’t belong. You will always find it because you’ve made that your mission. Stop scouring people’s faces for evidence that you’re not enough. You will always find it because you’ve made that your goal. True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we don’t negotiate their value with the world. The truth about who we are lives in our hearts. Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation, especially our own. No one belongs here more than you.”~
