While I have been thinking about Growth and Coffee and all the good things…sparkles, good vibes, sundresses and lemonades…,vitamin Sea…., you wake up on days where being human kicks in fast and hard. And it can suck!! BIG-TIME!!!!!
When being the bigger one in ‘grown up’ situations makes you feel small in the big decisions,
When the search for the inner peace feels like a climb in a very steep mountain and trying to meditate feels like a bad joke.
When the phrase, ‘it’s one of those days” feels like three years squeezed into a day…
Deep breathing feels like you have done a thousand sprints in a span of a long minute and you can’t even catch up with your breathe….
When sleep evades you or you feel sleeping for 6 days because you just feel tired…
Then you meet people who have had it TOUGH!!!! I mean TOUGH!!!
You got nothing on what they go through. What being human to them means. Those people Who carry a bucket of water to put off your fire because that’s who they are.
They are downright HUMBLE.
They honestly just sit down and listen. They want to be heard but it’s not always about them. They don’t have the ‘I’ syndrome. And then they offer a simple, ‘it’s gonna be alright ‘ nod. Simple kind gestures. Kindness is theirs to keep.
And then you sit down and listen to them and just become stunned and shush. Because no words can come out right…
In that moment you are reminded that if we just sit and listen we will always hear the depth of what really goes on. That it’s okay to feel down and unworthy. But there is hope. There is a promise. That at the end of the day, we are just that….HUMAN!!!!!
