"We become capable of imaginatively, curiously, 'stepping back' from ourselves- from the life we lead- and of disposing ourselves to 'know about it.' The moment comes when we not only live, but begin to know, that we are living- hence it is possible for us to know that we know, and therefore to know that we could do more." ~ Paulo Freire
When we walk along life's path, eventually, we acknowledge that creative ground which supports our steps. Occasionally, we need to clear the way of debris, 'lead ourselves not into temptation' (distraction) as we accommodate the footing that moves us forward. Fortitude emerges with the recognition that we have the power to adjust, adapt, attempt, achieve, affect. We evolve; we make a difference.
