Unfilled

Lessons From Anorexia, Unsorted November 28, 2018

What was once desperate attempts at survival became wisdom and loving self-restraint.

Higher Thoughts

Reflections June 3, 2018

What Now became

a choice in each moment,

the courage to release

everything held

so carefully for so long —

again and again.

It was the conviction

to stand firmly

in a space of not knowing —

the willingness to loosen

my grip on life —

the choice to wait for inspiration

and higher thoughts.

Into My Heart

Continuing On September 28, 2016

I found myself within

a beautiful motion

of holding

and letting go,

allowing attention

to land

where it pleased,

sometimes pausing —

always continuing —

unattached to labels

or the need to

connect all of the dots

too soon —

holding and honoring

all that crossed

my path

as this most natural

rhythm began to feel

more and more

like home —

letting go into

my own deepest heart.
