I don't often think of growing in terms of difficulty, but I found that phrase on Danielle LaPorte's site today and it felt good. It felt like relief. Like I could breath again. A sense that while my small bud is struggling to grow roots right now into a direction in my garden I had yet to claim, that over time, strength will grow. Over time I will find that underground water source and be able to support my own flourishing.
It reminded me that the pain today, was a growing pain. A temporary thing. That tomorrow's pain will be thing of the past as well, because I will have grown that much more
So today I will take small step and enjoy the process, because I will only be here once, in this spot, in this time, making these choices. That has been my gift today.
Growing roots into your longing
