“One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough, or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate & strong.” Jacinda Ardern
As a Compassionate Gardener of life You have to be fearless!
I was an accidental home – birth, a Summer child, the first female grand-child, daughter, sister, cousin that no one knew how to handle. But who deeply knew what it meant to be fearless, while surrounded by constant fear.
A fear that prevents growth!
I learned to accept what was, has been, is and do now whatever it takes to break through fears. When the time for change is ripe! When it is time to get out, and leave a mark behind to be remembered, and not forgotten!
That is a re-occurring theme in my life.
There was always a deep need to feel home, and safe.
Most of the time, however, insecurities cannot help but show up eventually. By feeling too sure of themselves, acting like clowns, triggering hereby unnecessarily, and often unknowingly dis-encouraging memories!
Fear is a constant presence! But, thankfully, my inner Knowing always guides me!
Are we not supposed to show & teach one another what is needed to be able to grow ourselves in love, in life?
To dig deeper into who we truly are?! By being courageous! By taking responsibility of who we are? Healing our Soul?!
Let there be trust, let there be an understanding, let there be time, respect, interest, peace, joy, kindness! Whatever it takes & is needed!
Let’s allow ourselves to be true to change & grow!
Change takes time! Time is needed to be able to care for Self, and others!
Caring comes naturally when there is a strong will to understand & learn from past experiences. Realizing that there wherever is darkness, there is also light!
And with light there is a love that leads the way!
How else is it otherwise possible to lead by example?
We need such beautiful blessed fearlessness!
