today she chooses to embrace
her long legs and strong thighs that rub together just slightly when she walks...
a little softer, more sway as she get older
27 feels good...
she can no longer deny even the parts of herself that she's trapped in judgement
the parts of herself she's loathed and betrayed. today, total self-responsibility
she embraces her fire. her passion for love, feeling, healing, moving, gazing at the sunset, dancing in the moonlight… that part of herself that is just a little too much. the loud laughter at the most awkward moments, her mouth that tells the truth too readily, the “defects, quirks” that make her who she is.
who she's always been.
she embraces her sensitivity. the parts that just want to be alone, go home early, skip the party, rest. the parts that just FEEL SO MUCH. the healer inside that attaches without boundaries…
it doesn’t have to stay wounded to find love
she embraces her indecision
the search for meaning in this life
it will find her if she stays open to it
she embraces her pains, weaknesses, traumas
the little girl inside longing for security, to be held and know she is safe
maybe in the arms of a future lover ?
until then, she lets Love love her
all that is and ever will be
she embraces her freckles
her lazy eye
the tension in her hip
the scars on her legs
the birthmark on her side
her not always so flat belly
she embraces her own heart
even when it is closed in protection
old wounds whose bandaids are slowly peeling off
one day, this heart she embraces will stay open
receive and give love the way it so longs to
the day it believes
she is fierce
she is grace
she is powerful
she is woman
she is spirit
she is light
she is earth
she is wind
she is fire
she is free
she embraces the knowing the day she doesn't feel like hiding is coming soon...
and she won’t let go.
