Love. ⁣ ⁣ I see you over there, blaming yourself for the choices you’ve made, all the ways and places you’ve gone off track or hit rock bottom or royally screwed up something you really wanted. But here’s the thing. Our lives are built on a foundation of horrible choices and questionable decisions. ⁣ ⁣ We’re human, We’re gonna fuck up. Guaranteed. But we’re still here, you and I. Crafting beauty from the wreckage. ⁣ ⁣ Cause that’s what we do, babe, me and you and everyone like us. We make beauty out of the worst possible things.⁣ ⁣ And if we were not here to do that. To live in truth. To call it out. To bare our skin. To show others what is possible. Well, so many others wouldn’t live quite as much, or risk quite as much, or live quite as wide open as they could. ⁣ ⁣ And that’s not nothing my friend. Far from it. ⁣ ⁣ That, my dearest, is everything. ———- What do you need to give yourself grace for today ?
