she was glad

she looked in the mirror
and this is what she saw…
she saw a woman full of love
a woman full of shame
she saw a woman full of courage
a woman full of fear
she saw a woman full of joy
a woman full of doubt
looking
she saw a woman so full, brimming
her heart ached with all the fullness
and she was glad

 

i sit here knowing that life calls us to embrace the good and the not-so-good, the light and the dark.  it’s not that i think i’ve got things all figured out, but i am very aware of being okay, sitting with discomforts right now.  i am bothered, but i am not scared.

this makes me glad.

sending a little love your way, m
