It is okay to be gentle with yourself.
It is okay to treat yourself with the tenderness usually reserved for a newborn child.
It is okay to set the day’s intentions gently aside and look for solace, for comfort, for peace, for a taste of joy.
It is okay to be raw, even when the grief is old.
It is okay to lay down, to stop, to rest.
With deep love for your wounded heart and compassion for your humanity,
It is okay.
