“Someone I loved once gave me a box of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” #maryoliver #mariandrew #boxofdarkness

Gift
▫️
It’s an occasion that calls for one. It’s the time where we celebrate someone, their achievement, or a new arrival. Gifts are something we love to receive because they aren’t expected. What if that gift was years in the making, the only thing you didn’t expect was how the gift would heal you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are surrounded by people. Some we were born into and others we chose. I have found that with both we either grow in a relationship or we fail and the relationship ends. It’s what we do with the failure that becomes our gift or our continued darkness. Life is full of gifts, especially if we stop expecting them. ▫️

"“Someone... gave me a box full of darkness.

It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” by Mary Oliver called “The Uses of Sorrow”:
I have amazing support of my friends while walking through some smoke and fire. The gift of gratefulness, the gift is - all these angel wings of friends support carrying me through this patch. "If you're going through Hell
Keep on going, don't slow down
If you're scared, don't show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you're there"

Song by Rodney Atkins

And "Well raise another round boys and have another glass
Be thankful for today knowing it will never last
Still lets leave the world laughing when our eulogies are read
May we all get to heaven 'fore the devil knows we're dead"
Song by Turnpike Troubadours

Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.

It took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift. - Mary Oliver .

I’ve received a few of these boxes in my life. Each impactful in a different way. Some of which I am still sorting through. Not every present is pretty, and not every pretty present will teach you with the gift of happiness. But, they are all still gifts 🖤

Sometimes crisis creates new beginnings - an opening bigger than we’d ever imagined!!
This is your last chance to register for the Gifts of Crisis Workshop on Saturday, April 14! I’m reaching out as an inquiry as not many people have signed up – not sure as to why and I’m leaving that to the universe to solve… so I may try it for another date. Nevertheless if you’re on the fence and you’ve been interested, 🤨this is the time to reach out if you’d like to attend!
We will explore radical self care practices - embodied learning, ways of being-to support new beginnings!

When we are in crisis, we hold on for dear life 🧠💪🏽clenching our gluts, our jaw, our psoaz, our stomach....holding our breath. Our bodies tell us we are in danger and it feels impossible to find safety.👎
This causes our brains to get stuck in a feedback loop- we naturally cling to what they know and can end up causing us more pain and suffering. 🔥
Just like when we play tug of war and we’re about to lose- sometimes in our grasping and worries about being pulled in or losing, we forget that we can let go.🎈
We can let go of whatever is not working and surrender to the moment. That is our way in....🙏
This is where true freedom begins to surface. We try to resist feeling our feelings and end up suffering more.
It is only through acceptance that we begin to find the gifts in what wants to be born in us.
Join me in exploring The Gifts of Crisis In a workshop at @movementlust on April 14, 9-1pm.

Yep, sometimes our shit can help bring on those Mayflowers!
We need breakdowns and crises to rise and shift into our most authentic self.
How? Sit still & listen what wants to rise as a result of this crisis? Breathe and find ways to comfort yourself. Life is our teacher folks. Don’t resist but surrender and see where the gold is.
This is where you access freedom. Try new things and new ways of being, explore, let go of that shit!

If you want to find new ways of exploring changes, breakdowns in relationships, jobs or you are just stuck- come to my Navigating Crisis workshop on Saturday, April 14, 9-1pm!

"Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift." Mary Oliver - "The Uses of Sorrow"

One of my favorite moments from my act "Time" for Aerial Estuary's performance of "Currents." Performed at the lovely @themarshstudio in 2015.
