Maybe that would be the title of my autobiography.
In the middle of spitting nails, preaching to my girls that they are below NO ONE ever, I submit.
In the middle of proud tears and passionate words, I submit.
In the middle of feeling stronger and more capable than ever, I submit.
Those of you who share this brand of submission know full well the dichotomy of growing stronger through letting go. As you first enter that dual role, it can be confusing and difficult to know when to SHINE and when to shine. Then, you realize, the two are not separate.
You S/shine because you are part of a union that needs you in all that you are.
Sometimes, years down the line, you need to
Revitalize your commitment....
Revitalize your promise....
Renew your acknowledgement that these two parts of you are vital to who you are in the union.
