Whenever you think of your past, may you do so with compassion.

Whenever you think of your past, may you do so with compassion. May you do so with grace and with truth that you are more than what happened to you. Because for you, so many of the things that have happened have been so far beyond your control. But even there, in the unsettled wild of it all, there is still freedom for you to let go. And this does not mean what happened is okay, and this is not to make any light of what has affected you in, painful life-altering ways. What letting go does is point to the beautiful reality that you are worthy of new life, new hope, new peace. And no matter your yesterday, you are worth the journey to keep going, anyway. –Morgan Harper Nichols

​It’s time to let it go, floating high over the hills.

It’s time to let it go,

floating high over the hills.

So you can finally breathe

and you can finally heal.

Let this be your farewell,

the story that you tell:

“I will rest

in this beautiful truth

that even though

my heart has felt

the weight of it all,

I learned how to fly.

I made it through.”

Let this be the song of February.

Let peace be as prevalent

as a warm sun

on a cold winter today.

Be reminded on days like this

that things won’t always be this way

and you will be okay.

Not perfect, but okay.
