5 things

before I get out of each morning, I:

say thank you

say I love you (to myself and the world at large)

set my intentions for the day

smile (for no reason at all)

stretch and open myself to everyone and everything I will encounter that day

what do you do before you get out of bed

sweet surrender

i think we should give up

the idea

that we know what we’re doing

where we’re heading

what our lives should look like

how our life will turn out

and just

surrender

to the uncertainty

the surprises

the unknowing

surrender to life

and go where it takes us

maybe that’s why they call it

sweet surrender

 

masterpiece

your life is your masterpiece

edit it

as often as you need to

as ruthlessly you as must

curate it

make it as beautiful as possible

and never let anyone tell you differently

yes

if you say yes enough

if you keep saying yes

life starts saying  yes back

 

because

because

this is my life

the only explanation you will ever need

the world

the world is a self referral phenomenon

it is to you what you are to it

moment

relax

let it go

it will all come in the right moment

one life

you have this one life

how do you wanna spend it

apologizing

regretting

hating yourself

dieting

chasing people who don’t see you

be brave

believe in yourself

do what feels good

take risks

you have this one life

make yourself proud.

start again

you can always start again

there is absolute no shame in starting over

you can start and re-start as many times as you wish

as you need to

as you must

because it is your life

and if you’re not happy or satisfied

change it

peace

I always thought it was love I was looking for

but what has sated me is not love but peace

peace with myself

with all the silly / ridiculous / embarrassing decisions/mistakes I have made so far

and I’m sure there will be a few more in my future

peace with my dad for not being able to love me the way I wanted him to

and he loves me all the same

peace with my body and all its (im)perfections

a deep sustaining peace that has nothing to do with who loves me or not

or whether I have the latest it bag or hang out with the cool crowd

or ate at the finest establishments

a rich abiding peace that resides in me

that I had lost contact with

and reconnected when I started meditation

peace within myself was what I had been looking for all this time

and I finally found
