I should mention that one of the key themes I want to play out here is the idea of becoming the hero of my own life.
On some level, I think that becoming my own hero is a worthy goal. Not out of hubris, but out of a desire to see what I’m capable of becoming as a person. What fears do I need to move beyond? What do I need to embrace? What do I need to let go? What is my quest? Can I move beyond my fears and answer the Call? [The answer has been “No” up to this point – too afraid to let go and take a risk.]
This time in the world, and this life, offer so many opportunities. I want to move beyond being a spectator and become an active participant.
I’m not sure I know how to be a hero. It has not been part of my lexicon. But, that was then … this is now.
