breathing in a life…

i've been letting go of heavy things - butterflies rising

i’ve been letting go
of heavy things

and i’ve been healing
a spirit, and tending to a soul, and
listening to a heart. and i’ve started to
exhale. and to breathe in… and to
breathe. in. a life

…and i’ve been letting go of
so, so many heavy things

a growing season…

this is a growing season, of change, of turning, of shedding

this is a growing season,
of change, of turning, of shedding,
of letting things fall away, and fall apart,
and come undone, and be uncovered

and then a space of surrender, and being, just being.

and the reflections here are temporary,
so take them in and honor them,
and be honest with them, and own them…
but then forgive them, and don’t stay in them

let it all go… let yourself bloom

self-sovereignty…

become a more beautiful, whole, confident version of you

don’t look for your peace
in getting back at them, or trying to
make them see your worth and

go more into yourself,
become a more beautiful, whole,
confident version of you,
one that doesn’t need anything
from them to feel free

– self-sovereignty
