To knowing yourself
Giving yourself space
To rest, heal and revive
To give over to moments of nourishment and renewal
To go easy,
Tomorrow is another day,
To being kind to yourself,
Their grace of being kind to themselves, creating mental frameworks to house their experiences, boundaries to maintain their sense of self, choosing each day to sit in the midst of their intellectual and emotional life.
Their courage and tenacity, the will to stay the course – inspiring.
I will honor this, and the lessons I am learning as I stay close and separate.
