With each word,
Each loving embrace
In all her imperfection,
She tells the story
Of coming home

Sometimes it’s good to remember that everything we do is pointing us in a direction.
We can’t know for sure the direction, the future outcomes, or even the next steps, but we can keep moving.
For each step in any direction is movement.
And we can cherish ourselves enough to rest when we need to, so we can start again.
And we can work to accept with grace all that we don’t understand or even like about ourselves.
It’s a work in progress, this coming home to ourselves.
But we’re so, so worth it.
