May peace be the river

May peace be the river

in the desert of your heart

reminding you in anxiousness

your soul has not been torn apart.

Through the wild of a barren land

and all you could not understand,

it did not void your invitation

for you to embrace the day at hand.

For this life is still worth living

despite all you do not know

there is peace to be found out here.

there is room for you to grow.

– Morgan Harper Nichols

Perhaps, even here, I am growing.

Perhaps, even here, I am growing. When the days are long and I do not feel as strong and when the hours go by slower than they ever have before, and sun is shining and I am lost indoors, perhaps even here, I am growing...learning to be at peace in what does not make sense to me. Perhaps, even here I am growing. So I will inhale and exhale. It is well, it is well, every day is a part of the story I will tell. I am free to breathe here, free to be here, free to be at peace when nothing makes sense here, because perhaps...even here, I am growing. Perhaps, even here, I am growing. — Morgan Harper Nichols

Pay attention to the subtle ways you are growing.

Pay attention to the subtle ways you are growing. Pay attention to the small changes you have made since last year. They may seem insignificant, but they matter more than you know. You may not the very hour you made a decision, and you may not remember which week or which month you chose to let something go, but whatever you do remember, remember it well. Make room for it in your heart. Make it a part of the story you tell. Growth can be grand, and it can also be subtle. And when it ifeels small, it does not have any lesser meaning. — Morgan Harper Nichols
