I just finished watching Kris Carr's "Crazy, Sexy Cancer" about her diagnosis and cancer journey. She interviewed several other women living with cancer including the playwright/actress Oni Faida Lampley who said something that made me zingy:
"Everybody has something you either get to accept or fight your whole life long. Now, what do you wanna do? Do you want to fight against what's really happening? Or sink into it somehow. Cause there might be something in there."
She's right on. Sink into the things that scare you. That's where you'll find your true wisdom. And you know what? Once you know something, have explored all its crevices, dark alleys and spacious ornate rooms, it can't scare you anymore. Cause fear is a product of not knowing. Intimacy is the cure for fear.
