At some point in this wild + messy world, every one of us has found ourselves feeling worthless + broken + not good enough.
But you’re not worthless. You’re simply wounded — from society’s constant need for busyness, from the pressure to live in a way that is so far away from what you were put on this Earth to do, from the losses you’ve never let yourself grieve + the love you’ve never let yourself give + from the tiny traumas of every day life.
And that’s a good thing — because you can heal.
With gentleness + love + trust, you will heal. By letting go of pain + shame that were never yours to carry, you will heal. By listening to the quiet call of your soul, you will heal. By letting your heart be broken open by grief, you will heal. By creating a soft space for silence + solitude, by getting out in nature, by letting yourself be seen, by letting yourself be held, by deep breaths + Earth-grown food + standing outside under a star-littered sky at midnight reconnecting with the fresh air of aliveness, you will heal.
It may be a gentle + beautiful surrendering or it may be sharp + arrow-fast, like kissing lightning. It may feel like hell or it may feel like love. But one brave + open-hearted breath at a time, you will heal.
