Life presents us with opportunities to grow.
Confronts us with our own places of fear
sheds light on those things we keep in shadow
wanting to give us the opportunity to cheer.
To cheer ourselves beyond the limitations
to move us out of our comfort zone
to expose us to new situations
all the while reminding us we are not alone.
We can step forward
we can breathe deep
we can move toward
and take that wondrous leap.
Life presents us with opportunities to grow
gently, quietly, with confidence and pride
we can receive and allow grace to flow
and realize that love is along for the ride.
