“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”

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.
