Allow life to soften you.
We are so afraid of softness, thinking it means we are not strong and we are unprotected.
The funny truth is that allowing ourselves to soften lets true strength flow through. We can be soft and fierce – in fact, fiercer than ever.
Not putting up a jagged barrier lets us feel serenely safe. When we block anything, everything is then blocked.
It takes practice to learn to trust being in this way. That’s okay.
May we all find our gentle strength in softness today and every day.
