I am feeling quiet inside today.
As if a peacefulness has unrolled its yoga mat inside me and got to work.
It’s a calmness.
It allows me to remember all the sweetness, while acknowledging the scars.
Remember, just because there is darkness inside of you, doesn’t mean that darkness is all you have to offer to the world.
Darkness can teach us.
We grow stronger.
Scars are a sign of strength.
Darkness is a way for us to strengthen.
Aren’t scars kind of beautiful?
There’s also a pain inside my chest.
It keeps speaking up.
I’m okay with it.
The pain isn’t all there is, inside me.
