Every hard thing you go through in this life is an invitation to lean in and love yourself better.
Every person who can't or doesn't choose you is leaving space for you to step in and deeply choose yourself.
Every loss, every wound, every dark moment -- it's an opening. A gentle question. Life pokes her head in and asks, "So...what will you choose, sweetheart?"
Can you decide to have your own back? To really BE with yourself in it? Will you comfort and hold and care for yourself in the ways you often wish someone else would?
How much happier would we be if we spent more time moving with the force of life. Dancing, singing, making love, feeling sexy, walking in the woods, swimming at the beach, looking at flowers, watching animals, telling stories and gazing at the moon, rather than always pushing ourselves along a path that we think is leading us to where we want to go?
We owe it to ourselves to acknowledge that our mind is much smaller than the feminine life force within us. As it is the divine feminine that gives life to the mind in the first place. What if we were to let go of the expectations we have for ourselves, and became simply, free-to-be. To have a human experience. To feel content with just living and loving.
This is something I completely aspire to everyday.
