Owning yourself

"The key to our power is feeling. When we fearlessly own the full spectrum of our emotions (which also serves all of our creations), we begin to own the truth of who we are. Sometimes to discover this, we have to descent to our depths to repair old wounds or unearth old desires. But out of the old pieces and the new we form a new creation -- our lives. The results of such work are always positive even if some of the steps we take to achieve them cause pain. But that pain is short-term. The pain of never owning our full, rich, authentic selves lasts forever." ~Karen Andes, A Woman's Book of Power
