gentle + strong

near the water

“Like water, be gentle and strong. Be gentle enough to follow the natural paths of the earth and strong enough to rise up and reshape the world” ~Brenda Peterson

In order to be strong enough to rise up I need to acknowledge where I haven’t been that strong (and in order to be gentle, I need to forgive myself.)

Today, I forgive myself for all the times I was physically intimate with people who were not willing (or able) to be emotionally intimate with me.

Today, I forgive myself for the times when I thought I could control the world and people around me as a way of avoiding taking control of my own life.

Today, I accept my humanity, acknowledge my divinity and embrace my gentle strength.
