Instagram post by @thejoywarrior rosemary

I’m just over here leveling up and shit.
Harder can sometimes mean that change is happening. Life is shaking things up. That’s what seems to be happening. My sails are being adjusted as I enter some uncharted territory.
I’m in this space of being still and listening. Sacred space. I’m in between here and there. I’m not going back and I’m not going forward. I’m not a time traveler or a travel agent. I’m just staying present. Honoring just today. Today is enough.
I think whether life is getting harder or not, we keep leveling up. We learn, we grow, we level up. Day by day.
I love you. I love me. I love us.

    Leveling up like a badass. Like I wasn’t even trying to level up and it just happened. That’s how badass I am. 😂😂😂 Storming through the setbacks and disappointments and shit like it’s what I was born to do. 💪🏻 Hot damn maybe that’s just it. (Didn’t expect to have a revelation mid-reply). Love to you today. ❤️❤️

    Love this! It reminds me of when kids are little and trying to learn something new - there's always a lot of fussing while they are trying to 'level up'. We should let ourselves fuss a bit while we learn to handle today.

    @jendrandall JEN, I am right next to you as you adjust your sails through these storms and keep leveling up. I love that you showed up for your SELF while leaving a comment AND you probably showed up for others, like me!
    You are a badass. A beautiful strong and weak Warrior! I adore you. 💙

    @romiabm Thanks Sister! I love that we are all leveling up in our own individual ways and yet doing it together. 😘💙

    @tmy1056 Teresa!! I am a visual person and this is golden. I always say I imagine my self as a 5 year throwing a fit on the ground just getting it all out. I see her often.
    Thanks for this! Be good to your SELF. Be kind to YOU!💙

    @thejoywarrior lord have mercy I just wrote this truly lovely reply with poetry and shit in it and somehow it just deleted itself.

  • 9w ago jendrandall jendrandall

    @thejoywarrior [I FOUND IT!] who knew how sacred instagram could be? And how did you know that having someone right with me was what I needed the most? Yesterday I heard poet David Whyte say that “the touchstone of friendship is witness” - thank you for bearing witness to my struggle even in the midst of your pain. Despite the distance, despite me not having a clue what it is like to live inside your body, despite us never having actually met - I am right there with you, holding you in the tenderest part of my heart. Also if you need a laugh- my phone autocorrected witness as “whiteness” 🤦🏻‍♀️ glad I fixed that

    @jendrandall 🤣

  • 9w ago thejoywarrior thejoywarrior

    @jendrandall I so adore you! Instagram has robbed me of enough posts that I now screenshot each one like 5 sentences at a time bc I write straight from the heart each time. And as many times as I write “and shit”, auto-correct STILL wants me to write “and shot”! It’s an ohhmydamn every single time!
    It’s so important to bear witness for each other. As I often write, we all have a f💙ck face, mine is just literally my face. I write this to say that we all have great challenges and pain and struggles. If we were neighbors, I’d be there in a heartbeat. We aren’t and so this is how I can show up for you, by holding you in my heart, saying a prayer (even if it’s just lifting your name). My people here, surrounding me, can’t imagine my pain however they do see the suffering. There are no words, just hugs and I love you’s. I may not have words for your pain bc I may not know it, but I can love you through it. And I do. 💙

    @thejoywarrior rosemary you are the best ever and your name is the best name. Well except maybe for Fancy. Now that’s a name. ❤️

    @bearclaw4 Feels right, huh?! Just to keep leveling up instead of bringing ourselves down to the word “struggle”. I love you tons! 💙💙
