It’s You

The only consistency in my life-

change.

Forever,

Shifting

Growing

Evolving.

Life, like the currents unpredictable.

There is no winning in trying to fight them

learn how to swim with them.

Also,

learn to

let go.

Of expectations.

Of yourself and others.

Of what it should be.

and what it is not.

there is no timeline.

Trust that you have gotten you this far and hardship is momentary.

The waves come in and wreak havoc only for a moment.

Think of it as the change needed for growth-

to bloom.

to wash away what no longer serves you.

and show you your true self.

I know what it’s like to have one thing after another drag you away.

To look around and not recognize your surroundings anymore

Or the humans around you.

To try and make sense of it all.

I also know that there is calm after the storm.

That eventually-

We will have grown from the change.

We will have learned how to navigate the tempest

After passing through the motions of life.

Against all odds,

here you are,

living.

breathing.

radiating with energy.

when days felt endless and time was fleeting.

You made it.

When it felt like you were sinking- anchored to the abyss of the ocean floor you swam up just in time to watch one more sunset.

and it was beautiful.

That moment when you reached the top and inhale every little bit of air

you feel the vibrating energy only the elements can provide you.

it’s okay to be where you are at this moment.

whether that is physically or mentally.

just hold on.

and I know you don’t need anyone to tell you this because you’ve done it alone for so long.

Regardless,

you are enough.

You always have been.

You always will be.
