I Crave the Rose, So I’ll Face the Thorns

Yes. That quote speaks volumes to me about my life, and my fears. All my life, I’ve been afraid. Afraid to grasp the thorns for fear of pain or rejection.

But how could I ever expect to smell sweet success, the roses, either personally or professionally without the pain? I guess I was afraid to find out. Fear. That’s been the barrier for me.

I’m no longer afraid of the pain. It’s a fact of life. I can face the pain of the thorns knowing that I’ll smell the roses when I face my fears.

I’m grasping the thorns because I crave the rose.
