words to live by …

"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

Dawna Markova

I think I’ll share a favorite quote every Wednesday — we’ll call it Wednesday’s Words.

ps I just thought I would google Dawna Markova and guess what? She is the author of several books. I ordered this one  called, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life! Click on the book to learn more.
