“Even a goddess must carry a machete from time to time.” Not knowing who exactly coined this phrase, I will borrow it now to share with you. The visual of a machete can evoke many emotions: fear, safety, aggression, strength. Picture a machete as your support tool you sometimes need to hack through the overgrowth of despair and utter hopelessness. Your machete is there to use. Pick it up. Give it a good swing.
