One of the things I appreciated from the weekend’s QT gathering was a quote that my friend Karla Reading broad with her. It is from Audre Lorde, the Caribbean-American writer, feminist, and civil rights activist.
“When I dare to be powerful,
to use my strength in the service of my vision,
then it becomes less and less important
whether I am afraid.”
It was a weekend in which one of the important focus areas was coming in to relationship with fear. I continue to learn that there is a time when fear serves me. It builds an important resolve. And then, there is a time, if lucky, when I just forget the fear, and go for it! It’s good to do this with friends.
