Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
— Helen Keller
WOE IS ME
There are those people who point to their bruises and rail against fate, insisting that a branch snapped against their tender skin, while forgetting, somehow, that they had squeezed shut their eyes so as not to see the branches ahead. “Fate,” they sigh in the ever-recognizable voice of the victim. There is fate: floods come and tornados touch down, but imagine swimming in the raging floodwaters, letting the hungry winds of the tornado twirl you around in a wild dance of abandon. Some will hide from fate and change, cowering in the dark cellar of a frightened heart. You, though; you are different. You are preparing for a daring adventure of and in relationship, where you will face down fear and throw yourself right in the path of truth to yourself and others.
