we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room
i used to be a romantic she says as the smoke curls around her head
listening quietly i try not to swat at the smoke
understanding that this feeling that she is feeling just needs time and healing
i join her in her darkness with my tiny light
hold my hand i say
don’t start that goofy holistic shit says my dead hearted friend
this makes me laugh and she half smiles
hand still outstretched
she takes it
tears stream down her face as she ashes into the potted plants
holding hands we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room
I put my mental, physical, spiritual, and financial health first. Unapologetically.￼
I am honest about what I can and can not handle and I say no to carrying anyone’s burdens or stresses.
This does not make me weak.
When things seem overwhelming I take a moment to check in with God and myself reaching out to my support system if I need to.
I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination and I release guilt for not always handling things “perfectly”.
I surround myself with unconditional genuine love and I thank God for it.
I have all that need.
Abundance drips from our everything though we perceive lack
That shit is wack
We are rich in ways we don’t value enough
Yea, this existence is rough
But please believe with me that we have more than enough
Come through gratitude
Come through riches
Beliefs are powerful. I find myself sifting through my beliefs and challenging my self to examine how those beliefs inform my life.
What are four beliefs that stir up hope and faith for you? ( This question is for me)
I have observed some rather disturbing things in society this week.
I am choosing to believe that we are more than this negativity, division, and hate and that all this darkness will lead us to the light that exists within us and around us.
