I hope you’re all having a great start to your morning that’s filled with your choice of caffeine and some pretty damn great breakfast pastries.
I’m so glad that I get to start my mornings with each of you going forward. There’s something intimate about sleepy mornings and conversations over coffee. While I can’t do that with everyone, I like to think this is close enough, at least for now.
I’ve been thinking about life transitions lately. Specifically, the grey period where we get to choose who we are going forward. When we choose Wonder Women or Maleficent, when we finally pick the love we’ve been running from but always returned to, and when we say yes to ourselves, not out of selfishness or self hatred, but out of genuine love and acceptance of the unknown.
The sticky transition where we allow ourselves to become, not from infinite possibilities, but finally accepting who we were meant to be. And it’s damn scary. Even though we know this phase of our life will be successful and we’ll avoid hurt–it’s hard to accept that we deserve a life worth living without having to prove it to anyone.
We deserve to be here, fully ourselves.
“We must live in the radiance of tomorrow, as our ancestors have suggested in their tales. For what is yet to come tomorrow has possibilities, and we must think of it, the simplest glimpse of that possibility of goodness. That will be our strength. That has always been our strength.”
That’s what I’m gonna leave you with today. You deserve to meet yourself in a place of ease and comfort, where your skin feels just right and you can breathe. You deserve to take up so much space that sonnets are written about you and you can feel the violin strings of your heart playing a symphony. While it may not be the easiest thing to accept, I’m going to say it anyways. You deserve a life where you don’t have to beg and earn your worth or validity every step of the way.
Have a great day,
I’ll see you tomorrow morning.
All my love,
