A Promise

With thanks to Cathy Wilke, for passing this along... typically I shy away from quotes with a high cheese factor, but the message is undeniably important, and for me, it was nothing less than inspiring. So I wanted to share:

"I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to      loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as a seed goes to the next as blossom and that which came to me as blossom goes on as fruit."
