"We have become so obsessed with getting rid of our obsession, with riding on top of our suffering and ignoring its inherent message, that we lose the pieces of ourselves waiting to be found beneath it. But fixing ourselves is not the same as being ourselves. The real richness of obsession lies in the ineffable stillness, the irrefutable wholeness, that is found in turning toward its source." Geneen Roth, from her book Women, Food and God
For fearLESS Friday today, i'm going to do something that i find myself constantly resisting/avoiding. I'm going to sit and breathe and be still. I'm not going to write or paint or clean things. I'm not going to analyze or try to fix. I'm not going to obsess over what i "should" or "shouldn't" be doing. I'm going to let myself be. Here. Now. Just as i am.
Here's to embracing yourself, just exactly as you are. Happy Friday, beautiful ones.
