Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is slow down enough to hear that tiny, tender voice inside — the only voice that is truly your own.
It’ll sound soft and silky and slightly wild.
And it may take a while to hear it — because it’s usually buried beneath layers of thought patterns and cultural conditioning and other people’s opinions that constantly trickle and thunder through your mind.
But when you hear it, you will know — you will know because it will sound like home. And it will speak to you with a kindness and gentleness that is unconditional.
It will remind you to breathe deeply and move slowly and trust the path you are on. It will reassure you that, wherever you are, no matter how lost or how lonely, you are exactly where you need to be.
