Confronting our demons

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.”
— August Wilson (1945-2005), American Playwright

This quote speaks to me in so many ways.  The people whom I meet that are the most compelling and powerful and inspiring are those people who do not try to run away from their dark parts or shortcomings or demons, but those people who tackle them head on.  These are the folks who seem to be the most at ease and peace.  They have claimed responsibility for their own happiness and are rewarded by their angels singing.
