The Risk to Love ❤


Sometimes we take risks with our eyes wide open... 

In life... 
In love... 

Even when we know it will end in tears. Because we know that it will be worth it... 

Worth whatever we can imagine will be the cost.
Worth the pain we know we will have to endure in the end. 
Worth showing others that it is better to risk and live and love than to not.
Worth going after that which we're most afraid of for the simple sake of not having regrets.

Because what we gain is so much greater...

An experience that will live in us forever.
A heightened ability to love others... and ourselves.
Compassion that can't be gained with out experiencing our own pains.
Lessons and mistakes that we can learn and grow from.
Reflections that make us better players the next time around.

Learning to lean into our experiences, our pains, our fears and take actions inside and in spite of them allows us to grow.

My commitment in life and my promise to myself is to never stop learning and growing, loving and stretching...

Deep into the depths of my soul.
No matter how many times I am broken open or how many times I lose my breath.

Never stop risking and diving and daring...

In life...
In love...

Never... 
Always... 

xoxo
Mimi
