"There is, I think in all women, a wild and an ancient gypsy who cries in anguish when we starch her flat. There is a part of us that can never, ever be happy until the gypsy can dance." -Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves.
Though fairy tales end after ten pages, our lives do not. We are multi-volume sets. In our lives, even though one episode amounts to a crash and burn, there is always another episode awaiting us and then another. There are always more opportunities to get it right, to fashion our lives in the ways we deserve to have them. Don't waste your time hating a failure. Failure is a greater teacher than success. - Clarissa Pinkola Estes WILD WOMAN SISTERHOOD™ #WildWomanSisterhood #wildwoman #rewild…
"When we accept our own wild beauty, it is put into perspective, and we are no longer poignantly aware of it anymore, but neither would we forsake it or disclaim it either. Does a wolf know how beautiful she is when she leaps? ... Is a bird awed by the sound it hears when it snaps open its wings? Learning from them, we just act in our own true way and do not draw back from or hide our natural beauty. Like the creatures, we just are, and that is right." - Clarissa Pinkola Estes,
