in Brené's words...
YOU MAY NOT HAVE signed up for a hero's journey, but the second you
fell down, you got your butt kicked, suffered a disappointment,
screwed up, or felt your heart break, it started.
It doesn't matter whether we are ready for an
emotional adventure-hurt happens.
And it happens to every single one of us. Without exception.
The only decision we get to make is what role we'll play in our own lives:
Do we want to write the story or do we want to hand that
power over to someone else?
