Yesterday morning, I was sitting in traffic listening to an audiobook* and thinking over a new circumstance in my family that has the potential for great impact and yet is grossly out of my control. This is NOT my favorite position to operate from, to say the least! The last few days I have been giving myself the space, quiet, and grace to allow fear, insecurity, and over-think to pass through and be seen.
It is what it is, right? I can only control my awareness, reaction, and gratitude. Acceptance is at the core of all my growth but there are times, like this week, it seems impossible to embody.
As I sat at the red light soaking in the early morning sun, feeling the warmth on my face, and allowing my thoughts to wander, a phrase came through the audio. “This too.” Immediately my spirit felt a bit stronger as my mind interpreted “This too, is.”
Even this. This unknown. This depth of emotion. It is real and now exists as part of my whole.
This too…is. Even this.
I felt the swell of permission begin to find its way through the numbness of the last few days. Permission to allow peace to pass through the unknown and take a seat at the table beside my fear and insecurity. Offering its irresistible stabilizing presence.
Even the tiniest amount of acceptance invites an affirming, vision-clearing, unconditional peace that reaches beyond our circumstances. If you are facing something bigger than yourself. Something outside of what you feel you are capable of accepting. I’d encourage you to take a few quiet moments (or like me, days) to begin at the beginning and give yourself permission to accept that this too…is. It. Just. Is.
This blog is a personal collection of my thoughts, wins, losses, memories, and crossroad moments. Almost all of which were hashed out around my kitchen counter and in my journals.
