that’s where the healing begins.”
to not be
what they’re doing.
There’s nothing more intriguing
than being with someone
who feels as human
as you do.
Sometimes you have to be uncomfortable
before you can comfortably inhabit your skin again.
Don’t be afraid
Give yourself permission
to feel your way through it.
Expectations can ruin
I wish you love.
I wish you joy, peace, and prosperity.
I wish you everything your heart desires and whatever those desires look like for you: whether that’s growth, strength, connection, creativity, flow, a new workout routine that sticks, your goal to read a book a month, more quality time with the ones you adore….
But above all, I wish you ease.
And if you fall off that fresh “New Year, New You” bandwagon, I hope that you take it easy on yourself.
When you catch yourself stumbling trying to find your way in your work life, love life, friendships, or with your family, I hope you know you’re a work in progress – and so is everyone else.
I hope you remember that while January 1st marks a clean date for a brand new start, you can begin again whenever you want. Any day. Any time. And within whichever moment you choose.
May 2018 bring you the ease that comes with knowing that you’re already enough, exactly as you are.
Do things need to be difficult to be worth it?
Do we have to claim our greatest achievements by their corresponding weight and struggle?
Do blood, sweat, and tears have to be the elements by which we define the importance of our actions?
And does pain have to equal gain?
What ever happened to ease?
To focusing on the moments, people, places, and things that make us feel connected, inspired, and whole?
What happened to flow?
To working, living, and breathing in spaces where we feel in sync, settled, understood, seen, and heard?
To finding gratitude for the souls who get us and support our movement in this world?
What happened to being real and not competing with each other about who’s busier, more tired, most drained and most anxious?
Gratitude for the good that falls into our laps without us having to control things.
Cheers to the people who find their way into our lives to lift us up and drag us out of routine, the hustle, and the grind.
Knowing that the more we appreciate the good, simplicity, and a natural unfolding of events – we invite more of the same. The more we grow. The more we settle into a solid sense of self and a sense of calm that can only lead to more ease. Oh. And more love.
xoxo Happy New Moon.
