If I can trust myself,
I can trust you,
And know that it’ll be ok,
Even if it’s not.
Before you get vulnerable, ask yourself, can I share this with you, and be ok, regardless of your response? Do I trust myself enough to hold myself, no matter what you say or don’t say?
Can I take responsibility for my feelings, regardless of yours? Do I need you to validate or hear me, in order for me to feel ok about what I’m sharing?
Learn to trust yourself, before you trust anyone else
There is love,
Waiting for you,
In the dark places of your heart,
In the fear of the unknown,
In the taking of risks
Waiting for you, to choose it

Even when stuff happens that I don’t expect. Even when it hurts. Even when it feels impossible.
The only thing we can ever do is come back to what feels true for us. Staying in alignment. Loving ourselves more.
Everything is perfect. Whatever has happened has happened for us. To help us grow. To help us love. To help us release the fear we carry around like a shield to the outside world.
Softening into truth. Trusting in the process. Surrendering. Life is just a series of experiences – we can choose to embrace them, or not
Connection is two people, interlacing their freedom, and choosing to be present to each other in that moment.
When that moment passes, we choose again.
And so she made her choice.
She chose herself, everytime:
It was the only choice to make.
For she understood why: that people only ever hurt her from a lack of understanding, a lack of clarity, or from a place of fear.
She recognised that she was the master of her fate, and she could choose herself, without putting up walls that would prevent light from entering, and allow herself to soften into her own compassion.
When she became able to remain open, to forgive herself and the other, there was a space for love to enter, and heal. This was her choice.
This is what connection is about. It’s about trusting another person enough to risk being hurt: to keeping your sovereignty and knowing what is right for you, whilst being open to allowing someone to show you what’s in their heart, and respecting their choices
No matter what our circumstances, I challenge you not to be so completely in awe of nature – this view shows up for me every night, right from my kitchen window. I am so incredibly grateful to be humbled so profoundly every night and made to realise that I am such a small part of an insanely beautiful universe
It’s always something.
If you’re feeling it.
If it’s happening.
Don’t dismiss what’s going on with you as nothing, or say you’re fine when you’re not.
It’s something. You’re something. It’s ok to acknowledge that
And as she wandered through the archives of her old soul, she realised what she was, what she was capable of, and how whatever she had created for herself had allowed her to blossom into the person she was today.
She was not perfect. She was flawed and felt things too much for some people, but she loved hard, laughed hard and did her best to be present to all the facets of her life, constantly looking for the good and learning from that which hurt her.
She still had much to learn, but being able to accept her insecurities, the parts of her which felt less than whole, less desirable, made her all the more able to reach new heights. Because accepting where we are now is the only way to create change
Sometimes it’s not about the things you did or didn’t do,
Its about how you felt when you chose.
If it feels good, do it
There is beauty and simplicity in the not-knowing:
in the moments before the clarity comes and you can pause,
suspended above the decision
without the consequences
breathing into the neutrality
trusting that you will know,
exactly when you need to know
