That's a hard thing.
I called mom.
She said, "Just be still and listen today, Andrea."
So here I am
I find stillness when I write.
I hear things that I can't when I talk.
I read things I can't understand if I'm moving.
So in the midst of stillness I found this. Enjoy a moment of peace, as I did. You will surely be blessed!

you, the one reading these words
you, with your ancient, wanting heart
you, wondering if you'll ever
get it right
I invite you to pause
for a moment
to listen to the space
to the space where softness
to the space that so
asks you to
that doubt your worth
to stop the voices that compare
and leave you feeling
There is no less
there are no shadows or shoulds, no pretty or good
no bad or broken, no right or wrong in
There is only this breath
and that which breathes it
there is only You
and your giggling, fully blossomed
