It’s Monday, sun is shining, and aside from kids blowing their noses and water pulling on the washing machine, I hear birds chirping. But I have to focus to hear that.
While everything is peaceful around me, I know it’s not for so many. Struggles in homes, flat-out abuse, many wondering if they can make the next payment, next meal, traumas, work pressure, burnout, hopelessness, injustice, straight up treachery..
It’s enough to make anyone feel small, unseen, unshiny.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I was admiring an olive tree at restaurant last week. It was stately yet quirky, and the coloring of the leaves made me think it must be fake.
Untill I saw dead leaves shriveled in the back.
Then I knew it was real.
Everyone has problems, doubts, we all have facepalm moments. But that’s life.
Highs and lows. Hurts and growth. Good times, Great times, Sh*t times too.
Be You. Find your own voice. Find your own flow. Don’t copy/paste everything around you.
And you may even help someone. Did you never meet sometimes going through a valley you already passed through? You can lend comfort because you’ve been there.
