the beauty of now…
March 8, 2012
it snowed…I watched it fall
women and men united found themselves in a moment and held tight together for change on some steps…I learned a different kind of strength
a whole new gaggle of neighborhood kids appeared at my door, bringing along a few more each day…I realized kids need to do a whole lot of nothin’/hanging out and just talking to feel supported and loved
opportunity can paralyze you…the “what do you think is gonna happen?” question is my worst enemy, but following the joy and call of your heart will always move you forward
I got stuck, very stuck…and being stuck gives you time to think about how you got there, so maybe even that is good
I held twin boys…and marveled at the beauty and tender heart of their mama.
I finally started writing notes/messages to strangers, only because I didn’t have anything for you until now…but I do.
my mother superiors (those mothers in my life, both the one of my origin and those gifted to me by the universe) find me every time I think no one knows…they rise
kindness can be so audacious, that’s exactly where I want to be…in the place where it feels impossible, even if it’s scary and unknown, because that is exactly where the greatest magic lies
it all matters…all of it…nothing is wasted…this is the beauty of now.
feel free tell me your beauty of now in the comments…even the gritty parts are good.
