Currently, I am fighting one of the hardest obstacles in my life. But, it seems that the more I fight with it, the tighter it takes hold of my being. I need to make friends with it….you know …”keep your enemies closer” kind of approach. If I accept it…make friends with it… laugh at it… it will lose its strength and loosen its hold on me.

I still walk these streets, but with total awareness. But, the awareness has changed. Where I used to see danger, I now see beauty behind the danger……..while still stepping lightly
