And then one day she decided to Live Her Life By Design and Not By Default.
She chose her friends, her collaborators and her teachers very carefully and protected her energy like her life depended on it.
People keep telling her that tolerance is a virtue.
She believes intolerance is also a virtue.
People think she doesn’t give a fuck. No. She cares very deeply… it’s that she doesn’t give a fuck about the things you think she should give a fuck about.
She attacks her mission like a savage.
And if called for, she becomes a Predator so that she can speak things into existence.
She is not afraid to speak her truth. Especially if it is in service of the greater good..
She’s not sorry for making too much noise, or making waves, big and small. Especially not when you don’t like the waves she’s making.
She risks disapproval on a daily basis.
She understands that The Truth can be inconvenient. But that’s Ok because She is Ok that you are not Ok.
She knows the intentions of her pure heart. For your disapproval and condemnation has only become a mark of her victory.
She’s not sorry that your change and growth aren’t easy or comfortable for you.
She knows that nothing grows fast in safe spaces.
She knows that it takes a loving and courageous woman to speak her truth and hold others to account in the face of terror.
At the end of the day, there is nothing but The Truth.
And how does she know all this? Because she has lived it. She only speaks from direct experience.
And she remembers that day so vividly….
It was the day, when she sat alone in the dark and realised that the Truth of who she is now, could no longer bear the lie of who she once was.
Since then, she has never looked back.
