One day, you will radiate. You will exude happiness, you will vibrate on a different frequency.
Hope will move from a far away place and plant its roots in your bones. You will tremble with meaning and intent.
The smile on your face will not be fake, the laughs will be authentic and they will hurt your stomach.
The drinks will be sweeter, and not be as necessary.
You will breathe again, inhaling love instead of smoke.
Hold on tight; the day is coming.
Today I am trying to protect myself.
Things are shifting and I feel it is all I can do to preserve my energy and my heart.
Nothing is out of control,
but everything is churning inside me and I have to be still and allow myself to feel it all – without allowing it to wash me out.
I have to stop comparing myself to other people because I am not other people.
I am on my own terms here,
on my own wave.
I am delicate right now,
like a moth.
And that is perfectly fine.
