After a while you will learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and changing a soul
You will learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child
And you build all your roads on today, because tomorrows ground is uncertain for plans
After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get to much
So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers
And learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong
And you really do have worth
This piece was given to me when I was 19, and leaving the house I grew up in, almost 30 years ago. I think I’m starting to finally understand.
Take a bit of time to simply sit with this piece, a little time for self reflection. Notice whatever arises.
The more we can practice self acceptance and understanding, the easier it is to breathe, and in time grow a little more fully into the person we’re here to be.
The world needs YOU, underneath all the layers life has thrown on you.
Thank you for sharing this little window with me
If you’d like to practice together, I offer weekly live online zoom classes, and as an additional support for you to practice on your own schedule, but together, I’ve created a video library and a monthly video subscription
Wishing you wellness in body, mind and spirit on your own unique journey.
