the universe is gonna make you
put your money where your mouth is, girl.
a memory pops into my head.
i had never really seen it clearly before.
it leads to another astonishing ‘seeing’
of another past moment that i also never
quite saw before.
which all leads to this incredible moment of understanding.
and seeing something as a gift for the first time ever.
as i walked into the building,
pulling the door open into the wind,
i thought ‘SEE THE GIFT.’
don’t find it.
maybe find it and then see it.
cause you can’t see it without finding it.
but see it.
within two hours i was struggling with something that
i find very very very difficult.
wanting to hide and just have the world go away.
and i heard a voice.
‘SEE the gift.’
shaking my head at the universe.
sometimes i feel like it likes to teach me until i really
get the lesson sunk into my bones.
see the gift in the struggles.
because it’s there.
and we need to see everything.
not just the struggle part.
i’m not so good at it.
but i’m workin’ on it.
