It’s okay to be irritated. It doesn’t make you a bad person.
It’s okay to not get what you want. It’s even better when you do.
Amazing, in fact.
Everything changes when we realize that Life/God/dess/Whomever is on our side.
That Life pushes us forward, in grace and the eternal new.
Or the new eternal — with the ancient women,
sages and little ones showing us the way.
The signs? Everywhere.
Hearts traced in potatoes, whispering dreams,
the moments of peace that still your breath.
The carrying wind, the scratched pencil marks, the earnest prayers.
The fire that emerges when we allow the space for it.
Fly, baby. Fly.
