Target Audience: Are you a person who has been willing to see that your dreams of: marriage, kids, career, money, friends, family, beauty, and everything but the white picket fence, has not ultimately brought you the serenity for which you had hoped? You have achieved societies models of what happiness should look like but are still not creating inner peace. You are still wondering who you really are and what your life’s purpose is all about. You have an amplitude of spiritual and self-help books on your nightstand and have allowed the power therein to elude you. You are exhausting yourself with cookie-cutter dogmas and want to remember what you know to be real. You yearn for a spiritual connection to yourself, which will help you see that you can create peace no matter how great the challenge. You are tired of feeling separate and aching for oneness in a world of varying politics, race and religion. You long to surrender to Love, the one and only universal truth. (Tweet-worthy!) You thirst to see someone who is walking through the unknown door while going through the pain versus resisting it. You desire for tangible proof that the journey is worth taking. Similar to following an overweight person losing each pound on the popular show, “The Biggest Loser,” you hunger to see a different kind of real life example of someone returning to their heart. To SEE what vulnerability is instead of reading or hearing about it.
Please allow me to introduce myself… My name is Kathleen Chelquist, and I am the person I just described.
I have been a “Contributor” on The Daily Love for over a year. Some of you have read about my fourth time journey with eye cancer, its physicality, and my reactions to the “opportunities” that have been presented in my life. But, what you haven’t seen is…me. For I have been hiding. And I no longer want to wear my Sunglasses At Night. I have learned that embracing my vulnerability brings up the strength within me. We hear that we need to face our own vulnerability, and we don’t SEE it in action very often for all the world to see.
Well, you are about to see vulnerability now if you choose to continue…My heart nudged me to share it. Please spread this message if you experience the desire to do so, and support me in breaking through the illusion (that I choose from time to time) that beauty is on the outside only.
