Today I got a letter in the mail. This is what it said:
First, I hope that you have been kind to yourself in these last few weeks. Keep a gentle space for your soul to stay vital and alive. Know when to stop. Make space and don't let the seemingly good and urgent things squeeze out the really important moments and the depth of who you truly are. Those deep spaces are the spaces from which you can give to the world. Others know you have a lot to offer, and they will suck you dry and unknowingly offend and violate the parts of your life needed to cultivate strong habits of the heart. Be the fierce protector of your own sacred Circle of Trust. Practice boldly. Speak truth and hold tensions but hold them lightly.
Breath in. Breathe out. Let it Go. (from the Carrie Newcomer song).
Yep, I wrote that to myself. Sigh.
