"You get in this life what you have the courage to ask for." Oprah

This idea of courage has been floating around for me today. The courage to take a leap of faith, the courage to change a course of action and the courage to accept the inevitable changes in life. When confronted with such things I have realized how fearful I am. I am afraid of rocking the boat, afraid of making the wrong move and even afraid of writing this blog. Yes even writing this makes me a little afraid, like what if people are actually reading this! But the more I learn about myself and the world the more I know that things don't progress without courage. 

Most scenes in my current script come directly from my life. It is sometimes hard to write, to replay painful memories, to share such intimate details and to even discuss a relationship that's wounds have yet to heal. So why do it, why share my story? First off I wanted to tell a different story, one that was not perfect and one in which the girl fought for something, even if that something was an understanding and love for herself. My hope with all my work and even my teeny tiny space here is that you can relate to the story, and in that we can continue this cycle of connection and compassion.
