Nothing feeds the soul quite like playing in Grandma’s garden. ~
My heart has felt closed, lately; like a brick sealed in my chest and insulated with mucus.
The biggest of shadows have engulfed me, and it has been a struggle- I’m not gonna lie.
Plenty of practitioners share their stories AFTER the fact; share their stories once they’ve gotten through to the other side; once they’ve seen the shimmer of the gold after having felt its heaviness; once they have a glimmer of hope to use as an example to help others.
Few practitioners share their muck in the midst of it, afraid of looking imperfect or unworthy of their title. But here’s the deal: we’re all. just. human. And sometimes, trudging through the sludge is just a part of that.
So here’s what I’m here to tell you, today: I’m in the middle of the sludge. And that’s okay. The sludge is what makes us- as humans and as practitioners- understand life through a different lens; gain perspective; whittle wisdom.
And I’m also here to tell you that I SEE you. I HEAR you. I UNDERSTAND you. No one is perfect, and imperfections are some of the most brilliant diamond-in-the-ruff blessings of the human experience.
It is okay to be in a dark place. It is okay to feel uneasy. To feel unsure. Confused. Anxious. On edge. Angry. Jealous. Depressed. Resentful. Frustrated. It is okay not to know what the other side of it is going to look like. And it is okay to have some fear surrounding that. Or lots of fear surrounding that.
It is okay to truly feel. And if you feel uncomfortable? Then you’re probably doing it right.
Sending much love,
