This moment captured in time tells a tale of trust. This kind of foundation is built through a dedicated practice of what we call “radical communication.” Everything is on the table, every fear, and every feeling. It allows us to play BIG in the world because we are not wasting energy trying to determine what the other person is truly feeling.
We know how the other truly feels, because first we feel worthy speaking our real truth to ourselves – and can now introduce another person into the practice. In doing so, we feel the safe space we’ve created to be exactly who we are and not who we “should be.” I cannot tell you how freeing it is to feel MORE attracted to my man when he stands in his wholeness and speaks his truth.
From this steady foundation of honesty and trust, I climb on to his shoulders as I’ve done a hundred times and I press into a handstand as I’ve done a few hundred times, and I do as I always do— repeat in my mind, “I am strong, he is strong, and we are even stronger together.” To play small is no option at all when you’ve got that kind of support to work with. This life is a great privilege and I intend on living every minute of it. Go BIG, go with TRUST, go HONEST, or go home.
