reflections of self.
today i am grateful.⠀for another trip around the sun. ⠀⠀to be able to see myself.⠀to have found my own love⠀+ value this above everything. ⠀⠀to have this heart of mine. ⠀that is broken, yet still big. ⠀to be learning boundaries⠀+ how to use my voice.⠀⠀to make mistakes⠀+ see them separate from my soul.⠀to be learning what it is to be human.⠀⠀to forgive.⠀⠀to everyday ⠀be finding ways to let down my guards.⠀to be growing comfort in holding myself. ⠀confidence in showing myself,⠀peace in being needed, loved, seen.⠀⠀today i am grateful for all the love i have uncovered in me that has opened my eyes ⠀to all the love outside of me. ⠀⠀it’s suffocating at times.⠀to accept. to receive. ⠀⠀but i am trying. ⠀+ i am grateful⠀for those who have stayed by my side ⠀either by leaning in closer, ⠀or giving me more room to breathe + expand.⠀⠀all of you in my life who are here,⠀just being, ⠀on your own journeys - ⠀pushing through ⠀your own discomforts + growing pains. ⠀i am grateful for the commonalities ⠀that tie all us together. ⠀⠀to make laughter, joy, peace + love ⠀that balance + ease the confusions + chaos. ⠀in order to grow into⠀+ through the lessons life gives us⠀so that we can come back to the only truths ⠀of what it is to be human.⠀⠀and this is that -⠀love heals everything ✨⠀
