i think pretty much
you may have gotten your ass kicked
in any number of ways.
well meaning- yet (often) worse-case-scenario/debbie-downer of a mind
talked you OUT of everything before you could even consider the newness
the possibility of what could be?
the self-doubt monster
the i-don’t-deserve-it goblin
the i’m-not-good-enough pirate
showed up to basically
crush your spirit INto a zillion teeny pieces
leaving you to sweep for HOURS
looking for all of your life pieces.
(you may have missed a few :|)
or maybe everything was FINE.
you hardened your upper lip
furrowed your brow
if you have experienced any of these things
consider that THIS may have been happening under the surface:
*we REvisit our ‘stuff’ in a spiral kind of way.
we may pass by/thru things several times
at several angles
*sometimes things are gone
without us even realizing.
then they come back
and we wonder
HOW ON EARTH WE USED TO LIVE IN THIS STATE ALL OF THE TIME.
just to remind us that we really ARE changing. growing. UPleveling.
we feel things. other people’s things. and beyond.
and they feel like our things. tho really they aren’t.
and at the same time- they are.
cuz We Are ONE.
if we could see what lived in all of the spaces INbetween all of the things-
this planet. This UNIVERSE (and beyond) would be One Solid Thing.
take a breath.
connect to your heart.
send out some love.
we are ALL going thru some version of something
many of those somethings are a bit uncomfy.
there will be many more moments of the UN
and a hell of a lot more moments in between.
when traveling the cosmic monkey bars of your life-
sometimes you can barely hold on.
sometimes you swing freely.
sometimes you just fucking fall off
sometimes you choose to actually climb up
and WALK across the top- defying ALL rules.
finding a nice surge of thrill
making it to the other side-
where you jump.
