Becoming Fully Oneself

"You need only claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly posses all you have been and are fierce with reality." Florida Scott Maxwell

While I was on retreat I read Parker J. Palmer's book Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voices of Vocation.  What a powerful book!  I just loved it and read the whole thing in two days.  I love this idea of being able to claim your while life and in doing so becoming fierce with reality.

What might it mean to live fierce with reality?  I am not sure yet but I know that I want to find out!
