don’t pretend to be strong when you’re not. don’t pretend to be tough and resilient when you’re cracking under the pressure. don’t power through when you are anything but powerful….
water. so patient, violent, peaceful, persistent, forceful, easygoing, unpredictable and just plain effortless. it’ll carry gold and minerals for countless miles. it’ll wash away your tears. it’ll rust out and erode stagnation and it’ll feed life on our entire planet.
be like water. you got this.
in our culture, and seemingly in many on the planet, we have an unnatural bent toward violence, defensiveness, struggle, battling and fighting for our values, beliefs, sovereignty and space….
love is a given, as is grace….
be your own source of strength. be wholly and powerfully you, so you don’t need to rely or depend on anyone – especially your partner, spouse, or would-be lover.
