Things have changed, and it may take a little time to get used to all the ways your life will never be the same, but even here, you are wrapped in this gentle, endless grace that gives you space to sort through things, and make the most of little things, and celebrate all of the ways you have grown, even in the subtle things. For though your heart has been broken, it is not broken beyond repair. Your heart is worthy of sunlight and attention. It is worthy of healing. It is worthy of care. And as you begin the journey toward something better, Love will always meet you there, and you will be free to take this day, as you learn your way through this all new season of life. – Morgan Harper Nichols
Come running through the forest
of your thoughts
into the clearing of grace.
Run through the wilderness
of who and what did not want you
and realize there is freedom for you
to still want better things.
It is okay to dream better dreams.
Even if what you lost
seemed to be everything.
Because the truth is,
you were always made for more.
You were always made to carry on
through the worst of things,
gathering all the strength you would need
to be who you are today.
Even when you were hurt along the way.
Even when you felt like a prisoner
in your very own mind, by grace,
and you still have permission
to roam free.
Roam free into the clearing.
Catch your breath.
You are allowed to do that.
You are allowed to want more
than these current feelings
and out in the clearing,
you are allowed to find healing.
