a grateful heart

"I worked so hard to be liked and wanted so badly to be loved,
only to have each attempt pruned back by the insensitivity of a world that wouldn't slow down.
Once I could drop down below the pain of my loneliness 
I came to accept my solitude and in that solitude I found eternity..."
-Mark Nepo

hello, sweet friends. how are you? what is the state of your soul today? i would love to read your check-ins if you care to share. if you are struggling, it's ok. it's a lot to take in and please know that i am here if you need to chat or vent or laugh or just be. here we are, seven weeks in to this time of social distancing and i am slowly sifting. there are good days and days that are not so good. i am trying to tune inward and listen and ponder and take in all of our surroundings. but it's hard, too. sifting through projects and ideas and disappointments and expectations. i am trying to hold space for kindness and optimism and peace. and hope.
