Dare to Show Up and Really Love!


“To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
to cry is to risk appearing sentimental and soft,
to reach out to another is to risk involvement,
to show up and expose your feelings is to risk exposing your inherent self,
to place your ideas, your dreams, your desires before people is to risk their loss,
to love is to risk you might not be loved in return,
to live is to risk dying,
to show strength is to risk showing weakness,
to do is to risk failure,
the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing,
the person who risks nothing gets nothing, has nothing, is nothing,
he may avoid suffering, pain, sorrow, but he does not learn, he does not grow, he does not live, he does not love, he has sold, forfeited freedom, integrity, he is a slave, chained by safety, locked away by fear,
because, only a person who is willing to risk not knowing the result
is free
