Are you brave enough to take off your cape?

“It’s braver to be Clark Kent than it is to be Superman.” That’s the heart of this amazing talk by Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Carry on Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed and my new hero. In fact, she is a superhero in my book. Please watch this clip, “Lessons From the Mental Hospital.” Yes, it’s 17 minutes long and worth every minute of your time. She is amazing. Because she speaks the truth, a truth we all need to hear, even if we are not quite ready to acknowledge it yet.

    Thank you, Thank you and Thank you. Amazing talk and this reminded me of a book entitled, “There Are No Accidents: Synchronicity and the Stories of Our Lives,” written by: Robert H. Hopcke. Last night and this morning there has been this struggle to determine if and when to present the story of my life to those that are hurting, feeling insignificant, less than a human or of little value, nothing to offer, etc….that just perhaps my gift will uplift and give hope. I love your blog.
