On meditation retreat I’ve been reminded of the okayness of life. It’s okay … this life, the one we have … it may not be fair, or pretty, but it’s okay.
We’re all living in a closet of some kind; the place we hide all the messy stuff of life so the house looks clean when the neighbors come for a visit.
This is for those of us for whom Mother’s Day is bitter and sweet: the knowing that we’re not alone as we share Mother’s Day from afar.
As we practice letting go and being okay – breathing, accepting, allowing – we find peace waiting gently, curled up at our feet, where it’s been all along.
Beyond all the goals, resolutions, and plans for the future, you — just as you are today — are worthy of love and acceptance.
Underneath we’re all the same, perfectly imperfect, doing what we can, making our way through life, searching for a warm blanket and a tender hand to hold.
