I often read my many blogs again and again for they continue to inspire me. My goal has always been to make sense of the world I now find myself in. My journey began so many years ago in desperation until I found my audacity.

Audacity is a willingness to take bold risks, to show up, and truly believe we belong here, summing up our journey as an empathetic loving spouse but it hasn’t always been that way. The loneliness, anxiety, and anger continue to whirl at times but with my life lessons, really affirmations, I continue to strive. Return to yourself, record all the lessons you have learned, your strengths, boldness, creativity, bravery, overcoming challenges, your willingness to continue the journey, your audacity—we all have it! Remember the unknown is full of expectations – show up with your audacity. You’ve got this!

Let me tell you what audacity could imply: the nerve, the gall, the chutzpa – how dare they do or say that? Audacity does take nerve, does take gall, does take chutzpa by just showing up, being your true self but I see this as a positive attribute. If you don’t speak up for yourself, who will?
