The wave crashing over her
Won’t bring her down,
The pounding of the water
Instead drawing her strength up
And out to the surface
Where she finds her breath
And dives in again

I was sharing with someone the other day about how so often the highs are so high, which makes the lows feel so much lower.
I thought at one point I had this mostly figured out with balance and healing work, but I’m learning that part of the pattern is simply how I’m wired.
Working against your own wiring is exhausting and generally unproductive.
But I suspect there’s also a middle way. Or middle ways.
That as we grow, we can learn how to keep the wave from crashing so hard that it knocks us to the bottom.
I don’t have the answers yet but I’m feeling like it’s the next part of the path, now that I know better how my brain naturally works.
And I’m curious what works for you?
