rumi starts the day...

Lately, I've wanted to scream NO!!! and run away from what I know I need to do next. My bones feel like jelly and my heart races. I want to run from the vulnerability that is required to show up fully in the world. But... something gets to me and I don't. I keep on...
.. because I recognize I'm ready. 
Seclusion is no longer feeling right even though this new way of being is super uncomfortable and scary...

On April 1, I started showing up as the real messy raw me, and instead of the slamming closed doors I was expecting, I found doors beginning to open. Some just a crack - as if someone on the other side just turned the handle and let the door breathe open a sigh. 
Exhale and step forward.
