Each of us, if we are fortunate, crosses paths with someone who holds up a mirror for us to see our true selves – magnificent and whole. The One holds in their hands our rawness, fear and pain. The One reminds us that mistakes are OK – they represent growth.
The One loans us their strength and wisdom until we can forge our own strength from vulnerability. The One helps us to nurture our voice from a squeak to a whisper and finally, to a roar.
The One walks with us as we crawl and toddle, shakily at first, then run full throttle into our new reality. The One shines our light back upon us until we claim it for ourselves. Then we become the One for ourselves and others. That is the power of One. ~ Paulissa Kipp
