On Being Heroic

It is heroic to grow into yourself and to grow out of old, limiting perspectives and beliefs about who you are. It takes courage and fortitude, and deep desire and hope, for without hope there is no desire and calling for more. What do any of us want more of? Usually, we want to feel more confidence, competence, peace, contentment, love, joy, respect, value, and esteem.

At the heart of most of our discontent, our pain, our sadness is the lack of connection to our deepest self and our essential self. We all have a real desire to be seen and valued by another.
We all want to feel competent and confident.

We get this by stepping onto the path of growth, whether it’s a soft invitation or a hard knock at the door of our life…such as a death or the ending of a job or relationship. We can answer the door or not, but if we do, we will be on the heroic journey of self discovery in which the dragons of shame and the demons of self-doubt (caused by codependency, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, etc.) will be challenged.

It is heroic, a full on commitment to know thyself; to know our wounded and challenging selves, our essential self, and our deep core desire feelings.

You can navigate your world with confidence and competence – it is your birth right. It just takes a little help and a lot of bravery to do the most powerful work you can do. To KNOW THY SELF.
You can struggle or you can develop the skills to dance, sing, and celebrate your life and become the hero or heroine in your own life’s journey!
