Today I offer a special thank you for all the life experiences I didn’t want. Thank you to the chronic pain, the people who have hurt me, the ones I have hurt, the disappointments, the despair, the voice in my head that tells me there’s something wrong with me. The shadow has reminded me to go towards the light. The pain has taught me to heal. The heartbreak has allowed me to become whole again.
This is the paradox of what it is to be human. Existence on this earth plane is suffering, and it is joy. What to keep and what to let go of is a choice we get to make. I choose to release resistance and the trash talk in my mind. I choose to follow a beautiful vision of harmony and freedom. And I choose life as is.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Many blessings on all your own complexities.
