postpone your dreams no more

driving home, leaving new hampshire

here is what elizabeth read on sunday morning to close out the session. It comes from John O'Donohue's To Bless the Space Between Us and these are the last two stanzas of his poem "A Morning Offering."

may my mind come alive today
to the invisible geography
that invites me to new frontiers
to break the dead shell of yesterdays
to risk being disturbed and changed

may I have the courage today
to live the life that I would love
to postpone my dream no longer
but do at last what I came here for
and waste my heart on fear no more.

that's just what i was talking about.  right?  moving through my fear to get to that place where i wanna be.  what beautiful words that rang true to my heart.  so eerily captured in a few stanzas.  i'm certain he wrote this for me.

feeling ready and full speed ahead to take on my one wild and precious life.
