I read something amazing today and wanted to share:
Love your sadness. It won’t last.
"Sadness gives you the chance to be still with the most tender place of your being.
Sadness is an opportunity to deeply appreciate your losses and your longings.
Sadness brings you eye to eye with your desires.
Appreciation is fuel for change.
Love gives your sadness the energy it needs to move through you… so it can move on.
By loving your sadness, you’re respecting your truth.
And freedom always follows truth."
Excerpt from Danielle LaPorte
I am ALL THE TIME trying to escape the sads, because it just doesn’t feel like me.
Also because I get distracted by glitter and butterflies. Nene Leakes. Peanut Butter. I never get a chance to fully “sit with” the feelings.
I run, I numb, I allow the feelings to be dimmed by the beautiful light so abundant in this world…
But I need to pay more attention to them.
I wouldn’t share this if I thought this wasn’t something universal to us all.
I hope it gives you cause for pause next time you find yourself feeling annoyed by/embarrassed of/frustrated with your sads.
Show them some love.
Also? I’m on The Instagram now.
Just like all the cool kids.
