For the eight SHE Print of the week, I have chosen a piece called SHE: COURAGE.
This SHE print ignites in you the power to unleash your ingrained courage.
Eagles have a long-standing representation of courage and hope.
Each time I am aware of another woman resiliency and bouncing back in the face of adversity I become inherently aware of how courageous I myself am. Perhaps this is imbued from my work with my students or the many books and memoirs I have read on grief. Maybe it is the people of all spectrums of life that I meet through art and yoga: the kids and small ones, the older and chubby ones, the pregnant and tired ones, the middle aged and cranky ones.
I see them start a yoga session, for example, thinking they might not make it, or it might not be for them. But if they stick with it, they bring courage, commitment and consistency to the plate...and, well then, they ultimately change. Their gaze becomes fierce and sparkly. It is a beautiful thing.
The process of seeing them change, changes me in return.
That is why there seems to be some inner nudging that tells me: ‘Wake up to life! You can feel and be so much more!’.
This week journal, reflect or comment below.
What is the most courageous you have ever done?
Who do you admire as being courageous (family member, advocate etc) and why?
Can you see that these quality are only a reflection of you?
You are one with that person, no matter what your ego says.
