[While I’m on creative sabbatical through the end of the year, I’m pulling some of the most popular posts from the archives and sharing them again. With the busyness, and sometimes loneliness, of the holidays upon us, I needed this reminder. I thought you might too.]
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.
