Thank you Jackie Robinson for coming to the rescue today. This is the beauty of connection at its best. One of us puts wise words out in the world, another friend finds them and passes them on. And so it goes.
‘So the woman who has danced out of control, who has lost her footing and lost her feet and understands that bereft state at the end of the fairy tale, has a special and valuable wisdom.’
I would consider it an honor and privilege to rise to this occasion that Dr. Estes illustrates. It would be a personal challenge to take those life challenges where I’ve lost my footing and turn it into my own fairy tale. First, I have to fully grasp and accept the feelings that arise from losing one’s footing. Each time I do, I believe it to be the last and final time that I’m faced with such challenge that completely knocks me off my feet. Yet again and again, I’m plunged into that dark place where I must face once again the end of the fairy tale. But now, I’m starting to understand that there is more than bleak, painful acceptance. I can use the opportunity of the darkness to rest, spin a beautiful, silky cocoon around myself and re-invent myself, my soul and the fairy tale.
This really got me thinking hard again. There is much dancing to be done. Dancing with wild abandon. Dancing out of control.
They dance with me out of control.
