day 26 ::: my shadows

i give thanks for...
my shadows.

[ embracing all of me...
the light & the dark.
no longer believing
my shadow is a part of me
to exile or hide.
it holds my greatest lessons. ]

“a shadow is never created in darkness. 
it is born of light. 
we can be blind to it 
and blinded by it. 
our shadow asks us to look 
at what we don’t want to see”

day 25 ::: friends

i give thanks for...
& laughter.

isn't about whom
you've know the longest...
it's about who came,
and never left your side."

day 24 ::: mornings

i give thanks for...
quiet mornings.

[ this said from a person who never
considered themselves a morning person ]

"i love early mornings 
when I feel 
like a rest of the world 
is still fast asleep 
& you’re the only one 
who’s awake 
and everything feels 
like it isn’t really real 
and you kind of forget 
about all your problems 
because for now 
it’s just you, 
the world 
& the sunrise."

day 22 ::: my secret garden

i give thanks for...
my secret garden.

[ it is not really a secret,
but it feels like one.
this old garden is not well tended
but still full of beauty.
every time i visit,
it feels like it has a story to tell. ]

magic is always pushing and drawing 
and making things out of nothing. 
everything is made out of magic, 
leaves and trees, flowers and birds, 
badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. 
so it must be all around us. 
in this garden - in all the places.”
