all these big dreams…

take a deep breath and just hold on

you’ve got
this big heart
and it’s full of all
these big dreams
and maybe sometimes
they feel too big
and maybe sometimes
it feels too hard
but the heavens want to have
favor on you
and it may take a long time
but it will happen in its right time
so take a deep breath
and just hold on

where all of me finds home…

i think you're where all of me finds home

forever trying
to reconcile this hopelessly
romantic heart, and this fiercely
independent soul

i’m such a soft lover,
and a wild wanderer

but i think you’re where
all of me finds home

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
what they lost in you…

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
