My therapist is called Chakra Carol... because she is a reiki and cranial-sacral practitioner and when i first met her, she was all about the chakras and i learned a lot about all this stuff i knew nothing of at the time. (dudes, she DOES NOT refer to herself as Chakra Carol, and also, there is no beading or macrame in her whole house.none.) and also, i like the mild reference to Chaka Khan that I echo everytime i call her Chakra Carol. Who doesn't want to think of Chaka Khan now and again?
anyhow, when freaking out to her about how much i was relying on a faith i don't really have, she pinned me down, like a bug on a board.
its not faith. its admitting that you don't have a damn thing to do with it, its completely out of your control and you choose to be full of COURAGE anyhow.
its not faith, or a lack of it... its COURAGE.
somebody give me a goddamned medal.
