It was a catalyst to change. To change my mind, my life and everything I stood for. Today I am reaping the rewards of the change.
Of course it is ongoing. The change. It doesn't happen over night. It is a journey of ups, downs and around the mountain one more time. Thankfully today the ups are more the downs are easier to handle and going around the mountain takes less time.
Giving in to fear and depression allows our enemies to win. We must stand tall and let the hard times make us stronger, more compassionate, more willing to fight for love. Fantasizing the freedom to love in a world full of hate, to be brave in the face of fear.
