Maybe Today Will Be Better

Maybe Today Will Be Better -

I rise in starlight
For a moment forgetting
The pains of the day before
When they roll back in
There is a choice-

I go downstairs
Open the windows

The smells of my life

It’s vulnerable
To hope for better days
It’s vulnerable
To hold uplifted states
To say- maybe today will be better
Is vulnerable and brave

I once had this friend who would go stiff as a board when I hugged her. She was hard. And I don’t blame her.

We’ve all been hurt, and it makes sense that we want to protect ourselves from future pain, but healthy relationships require vulnerability.

If we wait until we feel safe and calm before we dive in, we may sit on the edge of the pool forever.… Continue reading

Empowerment in Vulnerability

Empowerment in Vulnerability by #vulnerability #courage #spoonie #selfworth

Let Love In

Let Love In by

Simple sounding task. Deceivingly difficult. To let love in, we must lower our guard. Drop our shields. Experience excruciating vulnerability. Risk getting hurt.

We must let love in if we want to heal, grow, and bestow our gifts to connect with others.

Let love in.

A challenging notion. Necessary for a full life.… Continue reading
