Long ago & far away I did something to face my greatest fear
It was an exercise to make it clear?
Similar to jumping off a cliff to get over that stifling breath stealing fear
You can relate can you not?
Doing something? Simply because you cannot?
It has come in handy! I had no idea these little skills were building muscles
Preparing me for something I could have never imagined
Those lazy days of meeting myself coming and going
Breaking out with hives at the thought of speaking in front of a crowded place?
Taking it for granted that I could grab a bite, run on empty to get things done,
there would still be more of me to get life done on the morrow
That migraine I was fighting through was a passing moment~ so I thought
The stomach bug I kept getting was just because I was trying to get so much done !
I was run down ~ so I thought
Long ago and far away i thought I could fight my way through anything and everything ~ so I thought
But I was learning bit by bit!
My cart was gaining skills of a different kind! The ones which can only be attained through an alchemy of spiritual and physical fire of storms overcome by grace and mercy!
Everytime I stepped out to overcome with hope and optimism-even if it failed ? I won!
Because long ago and far away I learned I am never alone! When I reach out for Grace and Mercy ~ He has never left me empty handed nor left my heart sad! Beauty and Peace has
always settled into my soul and spirit! Because long ago and far away I found it to be true!
