Welcome to my head.

It’s in our nature to want to get things done as quickly and painlessly as possible. But what about mastery? What about patience? How does one go about learning resilience? We must slow down for the things that matter. When we aim to avoid pain, we deprive ourselves access to the lessons buried within.

We often pour kindness, understanding, and deep care into those that matter to us. Yet, when we are in despair do not show ourselves that same love. If they are deserving, why aren’t you? Because knowing yourself so intimately, then choosing to love what you see, is freaking hard.

The circumstances that shaped me were not my fault. Yet, I must assume full responsibility. Not that I deserved the pain, but that I am now the one who continues to perpetuate it. We have the power and the responsibility to forgive ourselves. To deny this act, is to deny what is.

I used to believe there was so much I couldn’t do. The irony is, I was right. Not in the predictable sense, though. I couldn’t accomplish these tasks because I did not believe that I could. This idea is also incredibly freeing. It means that pure belief in something really works.
