I hold such sacred space in my soul for my friendships. after my children, the gravity of those entrusted to me with their hearts is not lost on me.
i think it’s critical to remember in this highlighted instagram culture that the parties are big, the company is rich, the laughter is genuine and even still i go home alone to an empty house struggling with real heart healing.
it is both.
my encouragement to you is to hold both your pain and your joy with the same love and admiration. honor them both. cherish them both. sit with them both. they are not at odds - they nod to each other with deep respect.
i spent most of the day weeping while posturing fierce gratitude.
i love this season of my life. i love the messy complexities. i love that i have a tribe. i love that they are both my life vest and the boat.
find your tribe friend. and fight like hell for them. period. we are curated for this.
we can do hard things. but only together.
onward. for the life of the world.
