"get out of your own way!"
that's what the star-speckled sky is telling me tonight.
i always thought that facing our shit was the scariest thing in the world
our fear, our darkness, our secret boxes of pain.
but it's not.
because what's even scarier than any of that
is the ecstatic beauty simmering inside our hearts
our unstoppable love
our resilient power
our throbbing brilliance.
to face our light
because we finally see how worthy we are.
how worthy we have always been.
how fucking brilliant we are,
and then we know we
it's a welcome shock to the system.
