I’m grateful for poetry books, especially authors like Ian S. Thompson, Rupi Kaur, etc., who speak gracefully about tough life things and turn them into beautiful, relatable, and powerful words.
My best friend, Kathryn, who has faced many hardships and difficult times throughout the past few years. However, through it all still finds the positive in life. She brings a beam of light and ray of energy wherever she goes, despite the journey she has been through. She is my person, my inspiration, and a joy in my life.
Acknowledging that I don’t really know what will happens shines forward the courage and strength to let in possibilities of vulnerability, obstacles that bring forward lessons, and to practice gratitude in the present moment.
Walking down the street or in the store and exchanging a soft genuine smile with eye contact with a stranger touches me. It reminds me that in a world of intense craziness we can still be still, venerable, and present in the moment. With loved ones, I feel touched when we are enjoying each others company in a way that comes natural and easy. There is an exchange of laughing, smiling, and joy weather we are eating a meal, watching a show, or going on an extravaganza.
A long car ride with some soft country music or reflecting on my experience/feelings with my closest friend aid me in “going deep”.
