Stop striving, stop trying to reach perfection- you are losing yourself in the process.
In your endless quest for prefection you have given up the opportunity to deeply drink from life, you have bypassed joy because it didn't come packaged how you thought it would, you have missed out on love that was right in front of you because it wasn't wrapped in a pretty bow.
What if you stopped- stopped reaching, stopped emptying yourself saying it was your repsonsibilty to fill another.
What if you were able to simply focus on nourishing you, what if you loved yourself in the same way you love your child, your partner, your best friend.
What if you treated yourself with such kindness, with such love, with such compassion.
What if you were able to forgive yourself for what you had done, what if you could forgive yourself for what you hadn't done...
What if you gave yourself extravagant love...
What if your love was contagious, what if it was so full, so beautiful, so full of light that people couldn't help but want to be around it, what if it was so contagious that it spilled over onto whoever shared your presence.
What if you made coming alive with love a priority?
What if you decided to seek out beauty like it was your mission in life?
What if you shared the gifts that you were given for the sheer joy of it?
What if you held yourself and your heart more gently?
What if you were able to see the beauty I see in you?
