“When the going gets tough may I be quiet. May I steep for a while in stillness.” Katrina Kenison – What a lovely invitation.
It takes me back to a time, not long ago, when that was all I could do. It wasn’t easy to come to term with but I am glad that I did let that be the way. In the process I learned and came to a knowing that being present with what is is an active process! It is also a form of self-care, an offer of gentle, kind, support towards oneself. Like a warm loving hug.
Holding our heart, gently, tenderly.
