Even More Beautiful

Quieting, Unsorted June 22, 2018

I let go,

trusting that wherever

the pieces fall will

be okay —

possibly even more

beautiful than if

I had tried to fit

them together

on my own.

The Release

Reflections March 10, 2018

The next part was easy — at a certain point. Holding all of the pieces of my heart, there was just one more step, the release.

I stopped trying so hard to fit the pieces together as a separate little me. And I reached for something higher. It was the sweetest kind of surrender.

Whatever It Was

Reflections May 12, 2017

At a certain point,

the only real

option was to hold

the space within —

to retreat

in surrender

to the quiet prayer

of my heart —

not knowing

how or if

it would affect

anything else.

But it was the only

real option left —

again and again.

The landing became

softer

after a while.

And it didn’t seem

to matter so much

what met me

in that place.

Whatever it was

had to know

the sweetness

of that same

surrender.

Empty

Letting Go January 6, 2017

I searched

and gathered

and carried

and tried

and learned

many things

in hope

of finding

and sharing

something that would

make some kind of

difference

or bring some kind

of relief.

And I found the deepest

kind of healing came

in setting it all down —

daring to show up

empty.
