Open

Living Wide Open, from Landscapes of the Mind: 
I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.

This is a fantastic quote. I need to print it out and stick it to my kitchen board. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I tell myself to "get behind the wheel and drive your life Rachel. Don't let it drive you." This quote is far more eloquent and inspiring. ;)
