hrough the layers of shoulds, coulds and what ifs,
peeling past the not good enoughs,
squeezing around the apologies and pleas
to the unknown land of self,
where your spirit shines with light undimmed by expectations unrealized,
where acceptance and love are not earned,
they just are.
Journeys are difficult for me because change is difficult for me. Yet, I am always glad I have taken the journey in the end. I think the journey inward is the most difficult journey of all…and the most fulfilling.
