You Are Love

Sassy .jpg

You are a human being

with flesh and bone

body and breath

smiles and sighs

expectations and dreams

thoughts and feelings

movements and masks

questions and sadness

You are not

a puzzle to be solved,

a series of data to be sorted.

You are a subject

to be loved.

At every turn on this journey

ask yourself: What is the most

loving thing I can do for myself

right now?

Sometimes it will be

nothing at all.

Other times, it will be

everything.

Sit with yourself.

Be still with yourself.

You are a human being.

You are love.
