Should the "Not Enough Blues" Strike You
“but if you can plant yourself in stillness long enough, you will, in time, experience the truth that everything (both uncomfortable and lovely) does eventually pass.”~Elizabeth Gilbert
today, i am feeling a little off
mountains are made out of molehills
a body just feels weary
then i talk to an old friend
not about my troubles but about
life and upcoming birthdays and cooking
and feel a spark of life
i call my mother and she holds
my heart over these thousands of miles
all the while preparing for my
prodigal brother's return
that alone is enough
to flood the light
later my love will come
and hold me
because i asked
because sometimes, you need silence
sometimes, you need connection
and sometimes, you just need to be
should your heart be heavy or light
should you feel lost or found...
take care of your heart
like it was your dearest friend
invite her to tea, give her a nap
look her in the eyes and tell her the truth.
You are enough. I am enough. This too, shall pass.
P.S. Love this post. You could say it inspired this post.
