Joy & Courage
In the midst of whatever is going on, there is a fierce and fragile growth in each of us, relentlessly making its way forth. This growth is subtle and even unruly; it is courageous and joyful. It has come from a seedbed of experience where nothing was wasted.
As counselors, we witness this transformation every day in those we have the honor to come alongside. If there ever were an anthem, we would raise for our community right now on their journey; it would be: invite joy and courage. Make room for it, go after it, and embrace its opportunity to you.
You have it in you to grow!
The choreography of growth may at times be unfamiliar and uncomfortable, but it is in protest to the status quo of stagnancy. An endearing quote from Anaïs Nin speaks to this experience: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Here is to going forth with joy and courage!
