(UH-OHHHH, if you think you smell a series, you’re probably right.)
It took the wiiiild ride that is 2020 to know that my heart is soft, but I can love ferociously. That I hold it in a small and finite space in my chest, but it can be unbridled, free and flow endlessly. I’m still getting comfortable with letting the love flow. And show.
None of this was easy to allow, because it involved (and continues to involve) challenging many notions about myself. Many that I’d like to think are set in stone.
I am embracing softness slowly and gently. Inside and out.
And this might be the first time I can say this with faith and honesty: I love the person I am becoming because of it.
