Musings & Meditations – February 6 2022

I cannot tell you what lies ahead,
but I can tell you: you will grow.
Your ability to keep going each day
is a sign of courage on its own.
I know that peace feels far away
as you try to make sense of all the change,
and I just hope you can remember this:
You do not have to make sense of it all
in order to be worthy of peace.
To be the one who keeps breathing
in the unknown is a brave and miraculous thing.
Learning to exhale is no small feat.
You are doing brave things.
Yes, you are doing brave things
even though it doesn’t always feel that way.
